Wild Boar!

This post really has NOTHING to do with weather. But after 2 and a half years, I’m due for one of these. In fact, you will laugh, and be amazed! Do you recall the wild boar running free in downtown Utica…over a year ago? Well, when I read this story today, I immediately went back in my mind to that. Imagine…just take 30 seconds to sit back in your cubicle or work desk, and imagine…if this were the boar running through the streets then. Incredible!

Mr Nino is coming to dinner

With the west coast in a very long and very bad drought, and the Midwest and Northeast seeing the coldest weather in 20 years, anything that can shake up the atmosphere might be welcomed. Welcome back, El Nino. That’s the warming of ocean waters off the coast of South America. Expected to begin a new this year, it could mean more rain for the West/SW, and for next Winter, a more moderate pace in temperatures. It’s a long way off, and even this will result in bad news SOMEWHERE, you can be sure. But here’s the article for your consideration:
