Global Warming? Brrrrr….

Posted in Uncategorized by Kathy on April 14, 2008

Here I am in Mississippi, and it got close to freezing last night, and will freeze tonight. It’s the middle of April. Tomorrow is tax day. And there’s a possibility of snow. Tonight. In the middle of April.

We’ve already had our spring-time cold snap (it happens every year — the daffodils come out and are looking just beautiful, and then it freezes for a day or two and usually snows). I’ve got stuff planted in the garden, because I thought it was safe. (Besides, it gets so blasted hot here in the summer, and it comes so early and lasts so long, that if we don’t get stuff into the garden early, then it all withers in the heat.) So, with the temperatures in the 70s for the past week or so, I thought it was safe to put away all the winter clothes, and get out summer clothes (and go up a size in my kids’ clothes). And now I’m scrounging cold-weather clothes, and I’m huddled underneath a blanket while I’m typing because i don’t want to run the heat upstairs.  Because it shouldn’t be this cold. Because it’s springtime in Mississippi. But there’s a possibility of snow.
