Global Weirding

Dear Friends,
	We all know the true term for these wild swings in 
temperature, precip and storms is 'Global Weirding', not 'Global 
Warming'. The weather is weird - too hot, too cold, too dry, too 
windy - all these weird extremes reflecting the weather at odds with 
itself and not just the simple warming implied by the alternate term..

	Today after a few days of temps in the 40  I have bloom on 
Leucojum aestivum var carpaticum. The leaves are barely an inch out 
of the ground and the flowers are fully open at ground level. Even 
self seeded seedlings are blooming about.  I know the leaves and 
flowering stems will elongate in the next few weeks as the weather 
continues warm and the light rain we are having today all contribute 
to the growth of these flowering stems.

	Still this is pretty ridiculous! Global weirding in action.
