    of my life.   I'm not denying climate change at all and the last few years have been extraordinary to say the least.  And that's what makes it all so confusing for a lot of people.  

    I can distinctly remember having wonderful snow filled winters every few years and various levels of mild winters in between.  When I was seventeen I remember walking to school across the soccer fields on top of the ice covered snow in march.  Much like it is today.  When I was in college in Boston, I remember digging out my car many times each winter.  In the 90's I lived in NYC and had a number of particularly bad winters with the Hudson full of ice and piles of snow everywhere.  Back in CT for the past twelve years we've had a number of huge snowfalls, some over 20" in one storm.   The difference this year is that the cold has hung around for so long not much has melted since early January.  And you know what they say about a visitor who hangs around too long.

    I too am wondering what this year will bring.  I look up at the trees and wonder which should come down to ensure nothing can fall on my house.  I think about getting a generator or solar so I don't loose weeks of work like I have the last few years.

    I just feel helpless and that my personal efforts are just so small and meaningless in the face of what's really happening.

    America, where a rising tide lifts all boats! Unless you don't have a boat...uh...then it lifts all who can swim! Er, uh...um...and if you can't swim? SHAME ON YOU!
