And on the day after Earth Day, my dear wife Karen and I wake up in the Little Bitty in the Syracuse city Eastwood neighborhood to a reminder that spring can still be mean.
The new flowers and greening lawn were hit with overnight snow. It stuck. The temperature now at 8:45 a.m. reads 37º F. The local TV weather fellow says to expect at least 20 degrees below the norm for today and Friday.
Did I mention the snow stuck pretty good? Yes, it will melt. The wipers will whisk it away from the car windshield. Mother Nature will still do what she wants. Besides, watching the network portion of the news, I see that other parts of America are getting much more severe swats from her today. Earth Day did not appease. Nor quick fix. But let’s not stop striving.
What’s the weather where you live today? Are you experiencing violent swings this season, and if so, what have they been? What little or big things do you do to better your relationship with Earth?
