This is the first time ever in my life that there has not been snow in December. I grew up in a small town in Northern Ontario where there was typically snow from early October to the end of May. We moved to Southern Ontario when I was 17, but we managed to move into the ‘snow belt’ and though the winters were drastically less cold, there seemed to be even more snow. So in all my years on earth I’ve never experienced this… and I don’t know what to think about it. I’ve since moved into an area that seems to experience milder winters than where I’ve lived before, but a green Christmas? I don’t know if I’m okay with that.
The whole concept of global warming actually really alarms me. In my short life I have seen drastic weather changes–winters are much shorter, much milder, and summers seem to be increasingly humid and hot. As much as I love the milder winters, I know that they are a result of something horrible that we are doing to the ozone layer. I have a tendency to look into the long-term for most things, and I often wonder what things will be like 5, 10 or 20 years from now.
Anyway, on a much more positive note, I learned this morning that O.J. Simpson’s book that hypothesized how he would have done the murders if he had indeed committed them is no longer being published. I was horrified that someone actually contracted him to write the book, and it was apparently so detailed that it would have left the reader little doubt of his guilt. Unfortunately, because of the double jeopardy law, he can never be tried for it again. BUT, at least that trash is not being published. I was thrilled to hear it.
