Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this snowy, windy day here on little old Cape Cod, Osterville to be specific, and, if you have a window and live on the east coast, or have a working television, or are waiting to get on a plane at Logan, JFK, or the like, you already realize that we are getting clobbered by a deep hurricane strength nor’easter that is sitting a few miles due east of the island of Nantucket as I write these words. The low pressure “eye”, if you will, is lower, barometrically, than many hurricanes we have seen even in the past few years, as hurricanes are getting stronger and stronger as the earth continues to warm due to carbon emitted into the atmosphere, and, as a result, you are seeing storms like this one, at the beginning of winter, that are bringing real clocked wind speeds of 80 m.p.h., clocked earlier this morning in Wellfleet, here on Cape Cod, a small village at the forearm, if you will, of this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the last great ice age. Eighty miles per hour! Boston received close to 18 inches of snow, but, because of the size of the storm, even places as far south as Newark, NJ received over 20 inches of the white stuff. To give you some perspective of the wind speeds, at this moment the winds are steady at 40 m.p.h. in Portland, Maine, while hundreds of miles to the south, in Bridgeport, CT, the winds are being clocked at 45 m.p.h., so you can envision just how large that swirling counter-clock wise motion of this storm, or a low pressure system, really IS. But, remember folks, it’s all a big hoax, as our friend Mr. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, a republican, I believe, said this, famously now, beauty a little while back, “global warming is the greatest hoax ever played on the American People…” Now, in all fairness to our ignorant friend and ‘Senator’ James, the fact that it is so darn cold outside just proves that “global warming” is not true and should be called out as such. He went on to say, “…just ask my gosh darn chiropractor, who has to fix my gosh darn back every time I shovel snow, dag nabbit!” Poor James, keep f$cking that chicken, for CLIMATE CHANGE IS HAPPENING whether your EGO believes it or not! Hope you all have a nice day and, stay warm out there New England, check on your neighbors, or better yet, go out there and give someone a blanket, you know, one of them “homeless” people, you may just need one yourself one day. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
