  1. Nature vs Politics … both powerful forces and both capable of taking many lives

      1. It should indeed, but I am afraid history the world over recants a very different tale.

        1. Yes you are totally correct. Whole world is standing in an edge. Thanks for your lovely comment.

  2. Hmm , it true about the extreme coldness! I’m from the Caribbean and right now its very cold down here! These are the last days and Jesus is coming again! May God continue to protect us all! God bless and take care! Keep up the good work!

    1. Yes, cold is here too. And God will bless and protect all of us. Thanks for your lovely comment.

  3. I spent five days in western Florida, at the end of last month. It never got above 65, which is not cold to me, but was frigid to native Floridians.

  4. It has been a frigid and snowy Winter here in SE Michigan. Actually this year is more like a normal Winter like I remember from years past. The last two Winters were fairly mild, not too much snow and perfect for me as I am not a fan of Winter, don’t like to drive in it and because I work from home, I don’t have to go out in the ice and snow (though I took the bus for three decades when I still worked on site). Bu this year – whoa … just terrible. That cold snap you reference in your blog post was horrid. Had the heat on higher and cupboard doors all open to keep the pipes warm, plus keeping a small trickle of water in all taps to keep the water from freezing. I don’t know how the people who live in Wisconsin or Minnesota do it – I would never come out of the house the entire Winter! Thanks for following me, and I have likewise just followed you as well.
