don’t talk to me about Global Warming

The snow doesn’t give a soft white damn whom it touches.
E.E. Cummings

No, the above image is not of me, but it is how I’m feeling right about now.

From the caption, you can read that this was a selfie taken by a young lady who lives
in what is considered to be one of the coldest cities in the world and just so happens
to be located in Siberia, Russia…

Instead, this is my picture…

We foolishly put up things like this in the South thinking the Weather or Mother Nature
will never take us seriously.
Well….. it/she has…
and it/she did
and crazily it has once again snowed and iced…

Twice in one Winter here in the deep South is unheard of!!!
And technically the first snow was at the tail end of Fall with this latest mess being the first “official” Winter snow.
A foot of snow in the late Fall is so unnatural and so unheard of way down here in
the land of all things cotton and peaches, only to have another snow event taking place just
a month later, well, we’ve actually begun to make certain that the animals aren’t pairing off
in numbers of two!

School, Businesses, and Governmental agencies all being, or will be, shut down yesterday, Β today and some even tomorrow.

Adding insult to injury we woke to 11 degrees Farenheight, with a well into to the
negatives, windchill— making venturing forth into the snow and ice an even more
dangerous and now most unpleasant experience.

So my little sign, when I feel up to dashing outside, is coming down as I think I’ll put up
a “Welcome Spring” sign and we’ll just see if Miss Mother Nature is actually paying attention
or just delightfully messing with us instead!
My money is on she’s messing with us!!

“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Isaiah 55: 9-11

  2. Please put up the “Welcome Spring” sign. πŸ™‚

    Oh my southern friends, I feel your pain.we have been in the really deep freeze up In Viking country for most of January . So much so that lips have passed beyond blue and become purple. I know it must hard for those of you that aren’t used to it. I pray for all those sweet peaches and other crops being affected too. Take heart. Spring is right around the corner, but I’d take that silly sign down, just to be sureβ„οΈβ›„οΈβ˜ƒοΈ

    I like to tell the ‘global warming’ clan to come over my place and shovel the two feet of partly cloudy from my driveway……….

    Global warming be dmaned. πŸ˜‰ For God’s sake it’s called the seasons, where climates actually change. God is always on time and demolishes men’s gripes with a single gorgeous snowfall, including our temporary inconveniences.

    Hot and cold, night and day shall not cease. Oh oh, I just gave some knuckledhead an idea. ‘NIGHT’ is caused by humans!!!!!!

    Oh brother, one more cause to proves the stupidity of godlessness.

  5. I love global warming πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ I hear your pain, our winters are like this most years. I’m still smiling though because I choose to live where I do. Call me crazy.
    We will selfishly be praying for your fruit trees too, here in Canada.

    • I do love Canada- and I like snow – but down here, I like to see it come and go –
      And I confess-I’ve only visited the land of the maple leaf in the summer months but have certainly felt at home with the warm and welcoming hospitality β€” ehh

      • I agree, snow just looks wrong in a tropical setting. You will have to visit us in the winter sometime, especially in the mountains with ski hills. So beautiful. You might even enjoy the rush of a downhill sled run πŸ™‚ A cold snowy day in the bright sunshine is exhilarating. No getting around it.
        Many of us will admit, though,…… our favorite winter sport is going inside where it’s warm. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • I’m always up for a good sledding and hot chocolate 🀩

    I must say that even up here, Minnesota don’t cha know, where it is supposed to be cold it has been about 15-20 degrees colder than I have seen in the 23 years I have lived here.

  7. SharaC says:

    Lol no kidding, I’m already ready for some spring decor and it’s way too early for that nonsense.

    Coming originally from Manitoba, I’m certainly no stranger to frozen eyelashes, mustaches, and the like – even warnings of freezing retinas when conditions were extreme. But I also lived for a short while in Gainesville, Fl, and having driven down to Atlanta a couple times, I can appreciate what a shock this kind of weather must be to you folks, and after all, it is all about whatever you are used to. So I’ll be saying a little prayer for you, and let me remind you of a tip you’ve probably already heard, but always bears repeating: “Take it easy if you decide to shovel; snow is heavy, and heart-attacks are unpleasant.” Plus in your part of the world, God will do all the hard work in just a day or two anyway.

    I just commented on someone’s blog that I didn’t understand their quote. This one leaves no doubt! πŸ˜€ Now I go back and read more.

  10. oneta hayes says:

    Entertaining. We have been unusually cold but no snow. We need the moisture. Is there anything to the saying, “It’s too cold to snow?”

  11. Citizen Tom says:

    Now I know who to blame.

    Not much snow here. Too cold.

  12. Oh, my goodness… I’m laughing until the tears stream! Yes, pleeeeeeeeease put up a different sign, dear Julie! But forget the “Spring” sign. We need a “Welcome Summer” flag for your front garden!! Huge hugs! πŸ™‚

  13. SLIMJIM says:

    As a Desert Marine both pictures are too cold for me!

  14. Salvageable says:

    There is still ice on the ground in central Arkansas as I type, and the weather people are saying we could have hazardous thunderstorms, maybe even a tornado, on Sunday. J.
