Of course we can't talk politics and I seldom discuss religion but until now "the weather" has always been a safe subject. Something strange is happening. It is interesting how we have lost the ability that our ancestors
had, predicting the weather and developing a sense of causation.
It is raining now and it rained all day yesterday. It never rains in July in Oregon. It is camping season and if the sprinklers are not set on automatic the garden should go dry. There is still snow in the mountains, 200% of "normal" but it is difficult to figure out what normal means any more. We have had only two days over eighty degrees. It is an "unseasonably" cold Spring and early Summer, much like last year. Pretty much exactly like last year. A new standard. The weather is changing and it is strange.
The garden knows it. My corn is not yet "knee high" and two tomato plants have the color of Fall already.
Only the broccoli and cauliflower like this weather. I wish I had planted potatoes.
Other parts of the country are having strange weather too, a little hotter maybe, unusual dust storms, hail storms like snow.
I sometimes wonder whether the Earth can't tell us or we can't listen. Something is happening here.
Maybe like talking to a deaf person the Earth will shout.
