If you want in the game, son, ya gotta show jacks or better...and you have no cards.
Lest I be accused of casting snark, I’ve lived most of the last 70 years in the same general area. When I was a kid, it wouldn’t get up into the 80s until August, occasionally we’d get 90s. February was always the coldest month, helped the apple crop, helped keep the fleas, the roaches, the mosquitoes down; helped the apple crop set fruit. It rained a lot, some times for weeks, made the place pretty.
In the late 80s, we fell into drought, bad drought, stayed there for most of 15 years. Average summer temps are now in the 90 on the regular, and we get stretches in the 100s. And for the last 3 years, spring has arrived in early February.
Temps here are slated to hit the 80s over the next week, it’s been in the 70s for the past week.
Winter? What winter? A few cold days, and now we’re back to spring.
Welcome to the new normal.
