frost warning

I have to assume planet Earth is still teetering on the brink of environmental disaster due to the ravages of man-made global warming. (I haven’t heard anything about it for a few hours, so I’m simply guessing).

As someone who fancies himself a bit of gardener, let’s just say that I don’t want to have to be subjected to this emotional roller coaster ride anymore.

Is there nothing humanity can do to try and make sure my impatiens and geraniums don’t go through another scare like this again? Or my begonias? Can people please stop being so self-absorbed with their combustion engines, hairspray cans and flatulence and pay attention to the potential damage they’re doing to my garden? This blasted man-made global warming almost ruined my flowers – and just when they were really starting to get going, too.

Luckily, all of my plants and flowers survived, but it was close.

Nothing throws a lump of black coal into my Cheerios bowl like a man-made global warming frost watch.

From via The Drudge Report:

Local gardeners may want to take special measures to protect their plants this evening as a frost advisory has been issued for much of New York state, including Oneida County.

The advisory issued by the National Weather Service remains in effect until 8 a.m. Monday.

Temperatures are expected to fall into the mid-to-low 30s overnight, and a hard frost is likely as temperatures in colder areas approach freezing.

Brad Alcott, owner of Alcott’s Greenhouses in Waterville, said the possible frost may catch some gardeners off guard.

“Memorial Day has always been the rule of thumb for planting in the garden. So June 1 is definitely late,” he said.

What a selfish species we are.

Damn this global warming!
