Watching the news over the last few days, I am beginning to feel as if I am in one of the few parts of the country where the temperature is tolerable. If I expand to the global scale, I also realize that we are also not in jeopardy of severe flooding due to either storms or tidal activity. Fortunately, it doesn't take much for me to remember that we are, instead, facing the prospect of extreme drought conditions. Between our fatuous efforts to try to control everything and our self-indulgent pigheadedness when it comes to recognizing environmental problems, Mother Nature still seems to hang in there and make sure there is enough misery to be distributed to too!
