On Sunday the 19th (Dec 2020) the temperature was 32 degrees (0 Celsius) and and Maine had two feet of wet snow drop in a twenty-four-hour period.


This past Saturday (Dec 24th) here in western Maine we had three inches of snow, changing to rain that lasted 24 hours.  During the rainy period, the temperatures went up to 50 degrees (10 C).   Within three hours after the rain ceased our temperatures dropped to 14 degrees (-10 C).


Our world here in western Maine froze.


On the Maine coast, torrential rain accompanied by winds gusting to 70 mph, coincided with record-high ocean tides resulting in coastal flooding.


In a state with 1.3 million people, we had 130,000 homes without power.


I know everyone across the U.S. experienced abnormal weather patterns this week, some much worse than ours.



Only the most ardent climate deniers detached from reality may deny that the earth’s climate is changing.


With the ocean warming by degrees every year, I can only imagine what the future world will look like by the end of this century.

  1. Yes, the winter weather is crazy with blizzards and snow through much of Canada and the northern USA over the past few days! But we haven't had any storms here in Alberta, just bone chilling cold of -30, -40 and lower. However, those temperatures have eased up now. It's -10 at the moment, yay!

  2. we were below I went on porch to get cat bowls to feed the feral cats and had pj's on and felt my nipples wrinkle and get hard...that only happens after a quart of tequila...fuckme.
