Oh yeah, it is January, 2017. Earlier this month, it was cold here at Norris Lake in Tennessee. The furnaces were running. Wood stoves were throwing out heat. The flip flops were stored away. Sweaters and jackets were the order of the day. Businesses were closed, meetings canceled, Norris Lake area schools declared a snow day due to the snow and ice. Today, it is going to hit 70 degrees. The birds are singing and bugs are buzzing. I think I am going to paint the outside door to one of my cabins. It is on my list of things to do in the spring, but why wait? I have read articles about the proof of global warming. I have read articles on the science of global cooling. I have read articles debunking both lines of thought. So, what is a person to do? Well, I am just going to go with the flow and take advantage of the nice day today and get some outside work done! For those of you who frequent the lake in the summer, enjoy the photos below of when it was winter last week! My thought is, what if in July, we have temps in the 90’s one day and then snow the next? That would be strange, but isn’t it crazy to have it change so rapidly inside of a week? No complaints here! I welcome the spring like weather in mid-January! I sort of feel sorry for the birds and the bugs of Norris Lake…they must be very confused!
