The Rain is Gone...


Weather here at Tiny House has been changeable the past few days. It had been comfortable and sunny but we were hit by a squall that seemed to come from out of nowhere. The Weather Jackass missed this one in his broadcast, anyway.

It was nice to have the rain expected or not. If some scientists have the right of things we may be seeing less and less as the years go by, whether the climate change is induced by man or a normal cycle it may be time to start taking some precautions. That means putting the brakes on our overeager developers and builders, something that is unlikely to happen. Ecological conscience is always trumped by money.

We are having weird weather here too. I think it's the big spaghetti monster causing it all.

Over here in Australia, we're getting near summer temperatures still. Normally it's much cooler than this - in fact for a while it was, then it warmed up again. It's odd.

Oh, I meant to ask - what flower is that?

No really they are .

I read there are scientist who believe the sun has shifted and is also becoming hotter .

Look at the bright side. At least Arizona's not supposed to be flooded.

hammer:You may be right. Whatever is causing the trend we need to stop it, if we can. Maybe sprinkle some parmesan on the Spaghetti monster him to slow him down or something.

caramaena: I’ve seen some shows that suggest parts of Australia have experienced prolonged drought. We have that going on here – worse yet no snow, which means no runoff, which means a thirsty Phos this summer.

The flower is on the Ocotillo in our front yard. It is a bundle of thorny wands most of the season, but really puts on its Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes in Spring.

LL: No worries, hurricane season is right around the corner – you’ll have all the rain you can handle!!

WC: I don’t; know if this is just an aberration, part of a cycle, or if we are causing this warming trend, but I think it needs to be addressed. The caps on Mars melting won’t flood New York City. On the other hand would you miss it?

SL: I think we need a canal between the Ohio valley and AZ. They have flooding, we have a drought –t hey could drain off their excess water and we could strain out the Ohio cooties and drink it.

LL: I don't blame you. I live in AZ because the Wx is benign and little or no chance of earthquake, tornadoes, or volcanoes.

/t. Thanks /t., I will check out the flowers...

You get sand storms.

Of course! Nice change of scene tho..

LL: We do get sandstorms, they don't sweep your house away though.

fuff: sometimes change is good.

I agree with that. Many things could be done already, but as long big money is involved not much progress will be made.
But no time to sit and cry. Little men must start. Hopefully if it's big enough, money will follow... and if money follows, politics will follow as well...

Come to Michigan, Phos. We don't get any of that natural disaster stuff either, and we have plenty of water to go around. The prob with Arizona is an overtaxed network of watersheds. Unfortunately your next dust bowl is going to be way ahead of any theoretical aberrations due to global warming.

love that flower photo, the bright orange.
What is your insights on my communion post?

eduardo: Been to Michigan,in fact. I was up in Alpena. Not much there truth be told. I am a Wisconsin boy, myself, but have become whussified and can't do cold and snow any longer. What is your URL, I couldn't get to your profile...

tkk: Be right over...

I mean come on why would we worry about the climate if we can continue driving huge cars and built useless houses! I don't think THOSE people will wake up and realize they are killing our planet until its too late - sadly
