It’s cold outside. Know why? It’s WINTER time in January. Is it colder than usual due to something called a polar vortex? Yes. So what, we’ve had them before and we’ll have them again. The newspaper, television news and friends on Facebook are freaking out over normal occurrences. It gets hot in the summer and people whine about global warming
It gets cold in the winter and the next ice age is coming. Mother Earth runs things. She gets cool, warms up and gets cool again. Been doing it for a long time, too.
You know who should be complaining about the cold? The team of “climate change scientists” that had recently gone down to the Antarctic to study the myth of global warming. Instead, their ship got stranded in the ice. Actually, that’s pretty funny. Screw them.
Seriously, you know who’s cold? The cop walking the beat, the homeless person living in a cardboard box and the firefighter putting out a blaze as freezing cold water and wind batters his skin. My stepson – Jason battles fires in this weather with 70 pounds of gear and would never tell you it’s cold. So, I don’t want to hear about how cold you were while walking to your car and see a picture of your thermometer. You’re not that cold and neither am I.
Guess what? It will be cold again next time this year. It’s called winter in January.
