For the second consecutive morning I have awakened to the sound of thunder and rain. It is spring-like here. The weather has been wonderful for running and for those who hate the cold. It is not the result of man made climate change. It is not a sign of the end times. I have actually read cases made for both by individuals with great certitude just within the past 24 hours. It is simply an unusual weather pattern we’re stuck in. And weather happens. It’s frustrating how something as benign and random as the weather gets politicized or religionized at the slightest provocation. Trust me, winter will return soon enough and all will be as it should be.
