I just got back from a quick trip to the grocery store, and I sure was glad I don’t ride motorcycles anymore.
I wore the next-to-the-warmest coat I own and a hat my wife crocheted for me. Normally very snug clothing when the temps are lower than 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
But I’m not sure I’d ever been so cold in that outfit that I wished I’d worn more. The 25 degrees Fahrenheit was bad enough, but the wind was ferocious. I just checked the wind chill: 12 degrees.
I have a parka that’s heavier than my normal low-temp coat, but I never wear it unless snow is falling or lying on the ground. Somehow that seems like the appropriate time to wear it.
But when I go to church tonight for Bible study, I’m resorting to the parka–with no apologies to my wife, who likes to tease me when I wear the “Nanook coat.”
Would somebody tell me, please, what’s going on with this supposed global warming that the government insists will finish off planet earth unless it’s turned back? A number of respected scientists believe the climate variations we’re experiencing are normal, not an ultimate threat to the planet, and insist that “warming” is totally inaccurate.
I agree. The global warming just about froze me today.
What’s your opinion? Is global warming real? Or is it a hoax that allows politicians to invest in and make millions of dollars in the process? Please leave a comment.
I’ll be back again on Wednesday. If you’d like to receive my posts by email, go to “Follow Blog via Email” at the upper right.
“On Aging Gracelessly” is only one of my blogs. I post lyrics of the Christian songs I’ve written over the last fifty years on “As I Come Singing.” Check it out HERE if you’re interested. Free lead sheets (tune, words, and chords) are available for many of them. View the list HERE.
My new novel, The Devil and Pastor Gus, is out now. If you’re interested, please check it out at Amazon.
