Global Warming, where are you?

Went toodling over the Cascade Mountains this weekend, via two different passes. Stevens Pass, even at this late date, still has HUGE amounts of snow. Not drifts, actual snow deposits. Well over 10 feet in some places. The North Cascade loop, the return route, had less snow (but still there). Lots of avalanche debris, and huge boulders by the side of the road trying to look nonchalant that weren't there last year.

Back in Snark Central the cottonwoods are making their annual attempt to take over the world with fluff. Much to the consternation of the cats, the heat has been turned off but it isn't what you would call balmy outside. I remind them *they* have fur coats. And still owe me their share of the heating oil bill. And if we don't get some sunspots soon that heating bill is only going to get worse. I am going to have to have a bonfire every weekend to get caught up on my carbon emission. Gotta do something, after all!

I spotted the sun twice this week in between sandstorms -- does that count?
