Jack's a Dull Boy

September 19, 2013 - I find myself in need of time to air out my brain.  After nearly 5 years of writing this blog, it feels as though I've said everything I want to say.    While I don't think that's really true, I do think a hiatus is just what the doctor ordered.  So I'm going to relax by the fireplace and eat chocolate bon-bon's for awhile.  Take time to harass the Republican of your choice, and never give up.  If you feel like giving up, follow my example and take a break.  It will do you a world of good. - Best, Vicki

March 13, 2017 - Raise your hand if winter weather where you live has been abnormal. Here in the Pacific Northwest we have had record-setting amounts of rain. 2017 has been one of the fastest starting years on record in terms of the tornado count, which currently stands at 301 confirmed tornadoes. There is an historic blizzard taking place in the northeastern US as I write.

When you see words like "record setting" and "historic," think climate change. Otherwise, there is no change; events fall within an average range, established over decades or centuries. The events and patterns just described fall outside that range; they are therefore symptomatic of climate change. Every passing year gets warmer - and worse, by which I mean the damage done by storms measured in dollars, and the number of injuries or deaths caused by storms.

The warmer temperatures occur at night, by the way. Yes, daytime temperatures may also be hellishly hot, but they aren't at the cutting…


March 20, 2017 - Happy Spring, everybody. Today's post will be brief: the ten-year average for number of wildfires during January through mid-March is 8,687 fires that burned 216,894 acres per year in the United States. This year there have been 10,829 fires during that period, burning 2,062,012 acres. You read that right.
