We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
How come the press hasn't mentioned this cold August we have been having in the Northeast? I have a sweater on at this moment, and we have been using the heat all week. That was just a rhetorical question: this weather doesn't fit The Narrative, I know. If it were a heat wave instead of a cold snap, it would be front page news.
57 degrees here in Fairfield County Ct yesterday afternoon. pretty darn cold for 8/21. Good sleeping weather. I believe the narrative connects cooling with warming as well as warming with warming so the narrative shouldn't be a problem for the great intellects who have 'settled the science'. (What a idiotic concept!!)Even our vaunted fourth estate would prefer to avoid more ridicule on top of what they're already getting. Funny how Al Gore's scientific consensus is falling apart and he remains silent. I though he was into this science thing. he must be catching up on his Karl Popper and crying himself to sleep. Like I said, damn good summer sleeping weather lately.

Same thing out here in Washington state. We had rain last week, with highs in the 70s. They keep saying that tomorrow will hit 80 again, but somehow it isn't happening. Normally we can count on August being rain free but have had over an inch of rain so far this month. Looks like an early fall to me.
