A Most Different Thanksgiving

Yesterday, I awoke around 5 a.m. to -2 degrees F. Need I remind readers it is only November? With around 16 inches of snow on the ground and the wind whipping at times to 25 miles per hour, I’m not such a die-hard whitetail deer hunter, anymore, that I felt inspired to get out in this crap. Instead, I journeyed east on a three-hour car ride for Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends.

My eighteen-year-old Florida van, that has never seen salt or any temperatures below 32 degrees, made some of the darndest noises as it mumbled and grumbled in protest even louder than I was. I kept asking questions like, what the heck is that noise and consoling the old girl telling her it will be okay. You’ll be back in Florida in a couple of weeks, and I’ll give you a nice bath.

As in most any car, regardless of its age, riding on frozen Maine highways makes you think something has seriously happened to the suspension. By the time I got to my destination, I got a rush of memories of winters of many years gone by when I spotted the dark brown globs of frozen slush directly behind each wheel. The frozen reminders of nastiness were all large enough that the tires themselves kept the size shaved down, and each time I hit a “frost heave” or a pothole, the compression of the vehicle kept the bottoms of each mini iceberg from growing beyond its maximum.

As I drove along the highway, carefully monitoring my engine temperature gauge wondering if I have the right mixture of coolant/antifreeze to keep the engine from freezing, I began to reminisce about what the sides of the roads used to look like on Thanksgiving Day – each old logging road would have a car or truck parked in it, as hunters have hit the woods. In my 3-hour journey, mostly covering back roads, I saw none. I took notice of all vehicles I spotted, looking for “hunter orange” clothing – hats, vests, jackets, even the now shied away from rifle racks for fear of “offending” someone. I saw three that I suspected were going to or coming from hunting.

Is this the case because it was so cold? It’s been cold before. Is it because it was a holiday? Isn’t it a Maine tradition for hunting families to have Thanksgiving dinner after dark because the daytime is spent trying in near desperation to fill that tag? Or maybe there just aren’t many people left who hunt – perhaps because there are so few deer left, getting motivated to hunt in the cold is extremely difficult to do.

It’s Friday morning now. The temperature on my deck thermometer reads 10 degrees – “We’re having a heat wave!” There are today and tomorrow and then the deer hunting season draws to an end. I’m struggling to reason and to find excuses I guess. There’s snow to hunt on but it’s a bit deep and crusty/crunchy. It is also cold to be out long.

What to do? I leave for Florida for the winter in just a few days. Do I want to shoot a deer and then rush around to get the deer processed? I’ve frozen the meat and packed it in ice for the trip to Florida before, but I’m not sure I want to do that again.

The forecast says Saturday, the last day, high temps here are to reach a balmy 33 degrees.

Maybe tomorrow will be a better day for us fair-weather fairies to take one more whack at it.

Cursing Globull Warming

This morning I woke up to some more of Al Gore’s BS global warming, a.k.a. Climate Change. I need to remind readers that it is ONLY November 15th. It has been brutally cold. Presently at my house here in Maine, we have about 7 inches of snow on the ground. The current temperature is hovering at a balmy -2 F. The forecast calls for a Winter Storm Warning tonight into tomorrow. Snow accumulation of 5 – 10 inches expected, followed by more blustery winds and bone-chilling temperatures.

I haven’t even ventured out to go deer hunting. In my youth, I would have taken complete advantage of this snow and been on the track of a big buck every opportunity I had. Instead, yesterday I tried to figure out why my Farmall tractor up and decided it wasn’t going to run. The problem is it’s so damned cold I can’t spend but a few minutes at a time tinkering. With cleanup from the last winter storm still needed everywhere and more predicted, it looks like I might have to call a friend to plow me out if we get too much of the white stuff. I can pack it down and hope for the best. I’ll be headed South around the first of December (what was I thinking?) so maybe I can get by until then.

It would be nice to get some of that “Indian Summer” next week, or even the week after but so far nothing of the sort is in the forecast.

In the meantime, Al Gore can suck rotten eggs.

Considering that I used to walk to school every day, uphill, both ways, this weather is not normal, nor does it tell us the climate is changing. It reminds us that weather is weather – aside from the fact that technology exists to manipulate the weather and to use it as a weapon of warfare and people control.

This prolonged cold and snow remind me of November 1968. I hunted on snow just about the entire deer hunting season. Heading into Thanksgiving week, even in the lower elevations, the snow was higher than knee deep. Most of us in the family had tagged out before Thanksgiving and I clearly recall that right after dinner on Turkey Day, my father and brothers and I headed to the local ski jumping hill, packed it out and took a few jumps – on Thanksgiving. We could have been jumping before this but deer hunting came first. We needed the sustenance.

*Note* – It was two years later that during Christmas Vacation Week, the ski team gathered afternoons and evenings with bushel baskets, garbage cans, boxes, shovels, snow blowers, and snow plows. We scraped the adjacent field next to the ski jump trying to find enough snow to cover the jumping hill in order to ski on it. Comparing the two events is a reminder of “Weather Change” and nothing to do with Climate Change.

The Winter of 68/69 turned out to be a record snow year. I have to say I honestly cannot remember about temperatures. Generally speaking, with a lot of snow there is an absence of any real prolonged frigid air.

I am in hopes that all my hunting friends are able to take advantage of this snow and it increases their chances at success.

I wonder if the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife had it in their minds someplace, before issuing a record number of “Any-Deer Permits” that there may be snow to hunt on the majority of the season?

Global Warming Strikes Mt. Washington

But even our eyes popped on Thursday night when we learned the weekend forecast for the peak, part of the White Mountains in New Hampshire: wind chill from minus 90 to minus 100 (that’s not a typo).

With wind chill so astonishingly low, at a time when half the country was locked in a deep arctic freeze, Mount Washington was likely to be the coldest place in the lower 48.<<<Read More>>>

Global Warmingists’ Eagerness To Be Ignorant

It amazes me how willfully ignorant people are. Evidently, they like being that way, so much so that they are willing to present themselves in a public forum to show everyone. This is some of the fallout over the religion of “Climate Change,” i.e. Global Warming.

There is a difference between climate and weather. I’ve said so before. Repeated episodes of warm or cold weather might indicate that there is some kind of temporary change in climate; the changes that have existed as a natural phenomenon since the beginning of time. Man-caused global warming, as is being sold to a dupable public, does not exist. Perhaps governmental/military/scientific manipulation of weather events does exist. Criminals like Al Gore know this fact and are doing all they can to cash in on it.

The U.S. is in the midst of a prolonged very cold spell. Is this something never before seen? I don’t think so. But when we have all been programmed, through mass media mind control and manipulation, to react a certain way to certain events, emotions run high and for some…WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!! Fear is the main ingredient to controlling the masses of people.

The program, whose major promoter is Al Gore, tells us that Global Warming is extreme cold. Gore tweeted, “It’s bitter cold in parts of the U.S., but…that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis.” Please don’t be fooled by his use of the term “climate crisis.” This is nothing more than a rebranded term for global warming. He and his minions are still preaching that any “climate crisis” is global warming and that this warming is caused by man’s existence. And we know how much he believes that by seeing how he lives his lavish life with a carbon footprint bigger than just about anyone else in the U.S. Isn’t all of this just too convenient? Isn’t all of this just plain wrong?

This is nothing but the results of a well-trained mass of servants, robotic automatons doing as they are told, believing what they are told, never attempting to make any sense from any of it. Think of the submissive behavior of people who will demand that we control the lives of all people to “save the planet” and yet, willingly turn a blind eye to what the “master” does, never questioning. Think of the submissive behavior of people that in one breath tell of how global warming is causing milder winters and hotter summers and in the next breath talk about how cold it is and that also is because of global warming.

Here’s an example: Yesterday I was reading a writer’s report of all the awful things that happened in 2017. The piece begins with the author warning all of us of the “desperate need to listen to scientists and fight global warming with total conviction.” Because of this blind and foolish belief, the author attributes everything that happened in 2017 to global warming – hurricanes, winds, high seas, a warm fall, bad fishing, a dull fall foliage, forest fires, algae blooms, increased ocean acidity, dead monarch butterflies, dead moths, disruptions of migrating birds, more migrations, fewer migrations, etc. There was no end to all the terrible things that happened because of global warming.

The author states early on that all the bad storms were created because of an “unprecedented build-ups of ocean energy.” This, of course, to a Global Warmingist means warm ocean waters caused by global warming. Then look what happens. We read: “America was struck again by extreme weather… Throughout the season, a weak La Niña — a condition of lower than normal cold surface water that normally gives us in the North East above average snow falls — developed in the Pacific. Consistent with these conditions, on Dec. 9, we had our first major snow storm with six-inches falling… Snow and cold would continue to plague us.” (emboldening added)

From here on out, the doom and gloom were centered around how bad duck season was because the waters all froze over early. Snow and prolonged cold through Christmas caused life to be miserable; the author stating that “maybe one Christmas in 10 is snowy here.” (Connecticut)

A clear thinking person should be able to see the nonsense in what is being written here. The contrasts being told, according to the author and all others that bow down and worship the Al Gore religion of Climate Change, can easily and ignorantly attribute anything they want to the fake phenomenon, as we clearly see.

How do you deal with an individual so eager to be ignorant?

Deer Season in Northeast Ends on Tough Note

“The early arrival of winter has certainly made for an interesting end to big game seasons. The snow caused deer to yard up already in some areas, and guys I have talked to have seen very little movement over the past couple of weeks.”<<<Read More>>>

NASA Will CREATE Coldest Spot on Earth

The technology, which would allow such experiments, includes an atom chip with on-window wires that enable simultaneous magnetic trapping and optical manipulation, in addition to compound silicon and glass substrate technology that leads to both magnetic and optical control of ultra-cold atoms.

The Cold Atom Lab, which actually is designed “for use by multiple investigators” and is “upgradable and maintainable on orbit,” is scheduled to be launched inside the ISS in early 2016, where it will be able to function for 5 years.<<<Read More>>>

Hmmmmmm? I wonder what they can accomplish in terrestrial temperature manipulations?

So Cold Fish Frozen in Place

I can’t say I ever remember seeing this unbelievable phenomenon happening before, but I’m guessing it probably has. Evidently it got so cold so quickly that these fish were frozen in place as they swam.<<<More Pictures and Info>>>
