A BUZZARD EGG OMELET #9
THE WORLD IS TOO PREDICTABLE
The weather in
this year has astounded even the old folks.
We had a modicum of snow in January and a few nights of below zero in
February; but, then in March temperatures rose as much as fifty degrees above
average for this time of year. Last week
the temperatures were near eighty degrees (unheard of) then two days ago the
temps dropped back into the thirties.
Today we woke up to snow. Maine
Now I am not complaining about the weather – my rub is the forecast. In the case of our weather the forecasters were spot on.
What a bummer.
I can remember a time when you would wake up and be surprised at the weather. An unexpected snow was a marvel – something to be talked about and experienced.
Today you know what is coming and there is no mystery and amazement. So many mysteries of life have been co-opted by technology – and not necessarily for the good.
Predictability is the drudge of routine.
