I am getting more than a little pissed off with this weather.
We had another big snowfall over the weekend, and the grass is all white outside the window. Again. I never thought I would say this, but I am very tired of snow.
It’s costing a fortune too. Luckily the neighbour is bearing the brunt of the oil usage, and I reckon I have used well in excess of thousand litres since the start of the year. I know this because he was complaining to me the other day how he keeps having to fill his tank. I told him he should get a more efficient system in and pointed out that he wouldn’t have seen the oil delivery truck outside my place in ages.
One thing I am getting through at a rate of knots is seed for the birds. I love my birds [just ask Herself or Sharon] and believe in looking after them. The little buggers are cleaning out the feeders at the rate of one a day. I had a little accident the other day, and included some of my special seeds. We are hearing some rather strange and startling birdsong ever since.
I have been around for a while, and I remember some pretty stiff winters. This one beats them all however. It has been fucking freezing here since the middle of December. Of course the Climate Alarmists are going to have some problems with it. It is going to make a nasty little dent in their supposedly upward trending graphs, and I have a suspicion that they are going to accidentally lose the figures for this winter. Either that or they will have placed 100W light bulbs next to their thermometers, to ensure that their readings conform to their computer models. Apparently that is known as a ‘trick’ in the trade.
This time last year, it was quite pleasant. It continued to get warmer and we had quite a heatwave in May, I think it was? There was a feeling in the air that the entire summer was going to be a scorcher, but of course it turned out to be a fucking miserable summer after all, like every other fucking miserable summer.
I’m hoping that this Godawful weather is going to lead up to a surprise heatwave that is going to last for months. I am hoping that just for once, we are going to have a decent summer like the ones we used to have back in the 50s and 60s.
I’m not banking on it though.
