A Few Wintery Days

Well, it is still crazily warm for winter. . . Luckily for me, that weather has little bearing on my life while I"m in school, however you have to wonder how this winter is effecting wildlife, nature, and will effect farmers and others. Construction companies for examples have encountered weird problems like flooding in winter, while, I'm certain that this has been a distasterous year for forestry operators that depend on winter freezing to get into sensitive areas.

Myself, I miss snow and the chance to go skiing - as I may be moving back to the part of the country wheree winters like this are sort of par for the course - I was hoping that my last winter in New Brunswick would have plentiful snow. As it stands, it doesn't look like I'll be going downhill skiing this year.

We are supposed to get 40 mm of rain on the 5th of February (Happy Birthday Uncle Stevie) My memories of Febrary in Thunder Bay have a lot to do with -40 C, not 40 mm of rain. . . but maybe we'll get luck and get cold enough weather for snow.

I'm not up to writing my version of the rant on the "no right to freedom from responsibility" topic tonight, but I'll be nursing it.

I'm going to yawn and go to bed.

Talk to you all tommorrow

I've created a rant-olanche.

Now, I have a question for you Miss forestry, and naturey type... Is the level of percipitation, in comination with lack of freezing, going to cause drought like conditions for farming types?

To be honest I have not idea. We have had a lot of rain this winter - and even more this fall - so I think that for farmers the amount of water combined with a winter not viscious enough to put a dent in nasty micro-organism - are more likely to have disease problems - but that is a speculation.
