This is too much for my tiny little brain. I don’t get it. If it’s true, I will enjoy it, but I really don’t get it. January and February are supposed to be the coldest months of the year. DOeS nOT comPUte!

    And yesterday is was mighty cold… But before you think the upcoming heat wave is due to global warming – the record high for January is 13 degrees C and it was set on January 4, 1950.

    The record low is -33.5 degrees C and it was set on January 4, 1981.

    Weird doesn’t even begin to describe the weather we and many other places are getting. I feel like this planet turned into a hell world that used to exist only in the minds of sci-fi authors.

    Something is VERY wrong with the climate. I certainly don’t like what climate change did to Montreal and surrounding areas. I forget what sunshine looks like now that were socked in under an almost perpetual cloud cover with something falling from it every two days. I feel like a prisoner with all this wet and violent weather keeping me housebound all 4 seasons.

    This week was a week straight from hell with wild temperature swings, rain storms, wind storms and some sleet and snow thrown in for good measure. Recalling my traumatic experience with the 1998 ice storm, I wondered if the disaster’s 10 year anniversary would see a repeat when I heard about the crazy temperatures that were on the way.

    From what my penpals living in the American Southwest told me, Montrealers aren’t alone. California and parts of Nevada got pummeled by torrential rains and high winds. Some areas got snow.

    I also heard on the news that Iraq experienced snow for the first time in living memory.

    At the rate climate change is going, I find myself wondering how much time this world has left. Scary stuff has been happening.
