A politically correct humorous look at the record breaking heat this summer in New England.
by Tom Attea
Remember long ago and faraway when tropical rainy seasons only occurred in regions of the world that go by the name tropical?
Now, arrives a new lesson in nature's tough course for the human race, called Global Warming 101.
This summer New England has been drenched by such regular rainstorms that the sodden situation can only be described as just such a season. Virtually every day begins as heavily humid and ends with increasing cloudiness, followed by dashes of wind, the train-like rumble of thunder, Zeus-worthy flashes of lightening bolts, and then yet another downpour, as nature strains to rinse the weighty moisture from its overburdened air.
We ask, in mid-July, if we will see any sky-blue days of summer?
Or must we wait till the cooling days of fall?
And, prospect of prospects, will each year get soggier? Will the tropics ascend as far north as Alaska?
Stay tuned for global warming updates, as they inundate us.
