Are the Politicians On Vacation, Or Something?!

weather woes

Here we are, one week from Memorial Day, and it is FREEZING this week. We’ve had a handful of frost warnings (and frosty nights)… at a time when my furnace is put to sleep for the season, it’s still chugging away. 🙁 So where’s all this hot air that we usually experience a week before the month of June?


Our weather here has been wacky lately. This week, we’ve had 4-5 frost warnings, two flood warnings, and a tornado warning! And a few tornadoes did touch down in Upstate NY– a few near Binghamton, NY, and two in Madison County next to my location. One guy was hurt.

New York State seems to go through bursts of wacky weather, anyway. By Wednesday/Thursday, we’ll be be near 90 degrees! No wonder New Yorkers are always so crotchety; just when we think we’ve had time to adjust to one thing, another thing hits us! lol.

Well, I’m grateful that these kind of occurrences are sporadic. And like I always say, New York is a fine state if you are looking for a milder climate, compared to other states that have frequent mudslides, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, droughts, etc. Here in New York State, the only real natural catastrophe we have is the politicians.

    The weather is freezing here in Chicago too! I’m just so darned tired of it, aren’t you?? We have not been able to put the fish out into the pond yet and they usually go in around the end of April. I think we are going to go directly into the 90’s and are all going to be sweating our butts off!

    Who says the politicians are natural catastrophes? There’s nothing natural about them. And I turned the heat on again today! urgh …
