Well, yesterday at 12 noon it was all of 39 degrees, today at 12:28 it's 60!!
That's not too unusual, unless of course you consider the fact that we've had 80 degree weather already this year!! Yes, 80 degrees in March, 39 degrees in April!! We have flowers that have bloomed, trees that have budded, berries that were already starting to bud out.....and last night it was all of 28 degrees!!!
It's already flooded twice this Spring, and now there is no rain in sight!
Hot/cold, wet/dry....hmmmmm, I do believe I understand what Mother Nature is going through!!
You see, I'm a middle aged woman and I understand the changes that take place in an older woman's life! Mother Nature is going through MENOPAUSE!!
Yup, that explains it all. The heat fluctuations, the wild swings in moisture, the wondering what will happen next. Yup, it's definitely Menopause!!
I actually feel sorry for the old girl. I can totally relate to feeling as though you've been doused in hot pepper oil and then dropped in lava. The feeling of your insides heating up, not burning like indigestion, but actually heating up, and that feeling spreading from the core of your body to your legs, your arms, you feet, your hands, you fingers, your toes. Then, for no known reason, your skin feels as though it's been dipped in ice water, your skin moves of it's own accord, leaving a dense trail of chill bumps that cause your nipples to tighten and your hair to move around like demented snakes!
No wonder we've been having thunderstorms, tornadoes and high winds. I know it pisses me off when I have all of the above symptoms. But of course I couldn't cause twisting winds to tear a 20 mile trail of destruction, but still, I can understand! At different times in my life I have actually felt as though I could cause a 20 mile trail of destruction! (We are ALL lucky that I can't!!!)
Anyway, it seems that Mother Nature is having a mid life crisis of some type and we, the poor creatures that walk this earth, are paying for it! Maybe she'll calm down soon......or maybe we should put in a call to Father Time and let him deal with it!!
Until next time, stay safe and be sure to let your loved ones know you love them.
