You'll have to forgive my forgetfulness about posting earlier today. We've just returned from a long trip to California where the last week was nothing but cool, rainy, foggy weather with a series of missed flight connections and finally arrived home Sunday morning at 3:00 AM. Our internal clocks are finally resetting.
This winter has been extraordinary. The lake barely froze over when it thawed. Not much in the way of ice fishing, parasail snowboarding, snowmobiling or any other activities on the lake this winter. I even wore my summer hiking shoes all winter.
The flip side of the loss of winter activities was the much lower heating bills and the ease of getting around. This winter was very kind on our bank account.
So, is this what global warming feels like? We can only wish. But the real answer seems to be an arctic weather pattern that has kept cold air to our north and dumped it into Europe and Asia where they have been generally miserable. We don't expect a repeat next winter.
