Thanks for the kind words, GoodWeed and Princess. Now I don't feel so guilty. Especially as GoodWeed pointed out about the hurricanes. I moved from Florida to New Orleans!

Also the heat and humidity really do get to me. Thank heaven for A/C and low electric prices here.

I'd trade -5'F (this morning) for +90'F in Florida any day.

Oh, baloney. I just looked over this line and can't find it! Didn't someone write that they were going to have Tshirts made up that say "Minnesotans For Global Warming"???!! I told my husband that and he said he's thinking of copying the idea, "Galenians For Global Warming." He says, whenever a politician gets on his high horse on the subject, that he wants the man to live on our front porch for a few days. Looking at the record books, the past few years we've had record cold weather, which somehow, someone manages to attribute to global warming (puh-leeze do not explain this one to me). Every year I need more, More, MORE de-icer. When I was in the service, I lived in a trailer in North Dakota. It was worse, but I'm not sure how much worse.

Yeah, I had colder winters in Wyoming as a kid. I know our valley is sheltered, but dang, rain, in December???

It is called Global warming. Not Galenian warming. Sure, there are pockets of the earth that will have varying trends, but overall, the earth's average tempurature is warming. Its a big world out there Claire. More than you can see from your front porch.

A lot of people are calling it global climate change.

OK. I don't doubt. My problem lies with the claims that we are causing it or furthermore, can do anything about it.
