speaking of the floodgates

Man oh man…it just keeps raining and raining. I’ve never seen such giant slugs.The basil in the garden is yellow and the lettuce kind of rotted.  Someone told me last year that there was something about the slow destruction of the gulf stream that was causing more rain in New England. Storms are somehow getting stalled here.

Meanwhile a guy was visiting here the other day from Holland who said that they had never had such a cold winter. The gulf stream has been keeping Europe warmer than one might expect given that the 45th parallel runs through central Maine and through Italy. (And it goes through Korea, if I remember newscasts from the Korean War right. )

Anyway, I’m going to stop saying anything about global warming and talk instead about climate change.
