|This photo was taken January 1!! Looks like Fall but was Winter!|
There is talk in CALIFORNIA about us being in a drought. I looked up the word in the ONLINE dictionary and this is what it said -
drought noun \ˈdrau̇t\
: a long period of time during which there is very little or no rain
Well, that certainly describes our CURRENT weather - it is clear and warm today, record-breaking temperatures. But that hasn't been the case all winter where were experienced record-breaking cold just days before Christmas. And regarding rain, well I remember Fall as being kinda rainy and cool. So that doesn't really sound like a drought to me.
A columnist in the SF newspaper described the situation more accurately than this D-R-O-U-G-H-T word does. He described it as weather weirdness and THAT is what we need to be afraid of.
weird adjective \ˈwird\
: unusual or strange
But what do I know? I'm a pug AND only 4 years old, at that. But what I do know, and which is evidenced in the above photo, is that the weather has certainly been W-E-I-R-D for a long time and that has me a little worried. We do all kinds of things at our house to help preserve the planet and stop this thing called Global Warming. While the warming part sounds okay, Mommy explained that over all it messes with ecosystems and oceans and stuff like that. And once you do that, plant and animal life has trouble finding an environment to sustain them and they die off. I don't want to think of the AND which comes after this happening.
