The Weather is Stuck!

I have never seen this. There have always been warm fronts, cold fronts, wet spells, dry spells, etc. But it always kept moving. This is new. Every time I look at the weather map, I see stationary fronts, fronts that don’t move.

This has been a very funky summer: hot and wet. Usually, hot means dry. Not this year. I keep figuring that this has got to be good for some crops, but I don’t know which ones. It has been very tropical this summer. Michigan, tropical. How many different kinds of wrong can something be at the same time? It has been downright steamy. It is like breathing soup. Blech. Just nasty. I feel really sorry for people with COPD and other breathing issues. This has to be hard on them.

Part of my philosophy in life has always been that movement is normal, a sign of life. It is when things get stuck that you get problems. If something isn’t moving, you might poke it with a stick, to see if it responds. If it doesn’t, you might want to check for a pulse. Now the weather isn’t moving: not a good sign.

Meanwhile, the earth is on fire! Not an exaggeration. The western US is ablaze. As is Greece. And…(wait for it) so is Siberia. Largest fire on the planet. And it’s messing with the weather everywhere. What could be next? I have no idea. I’m not sure I even want to know.

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.

    I approach these things with a squint of the eye!
