I think even the most rabid anti-science, anti-evolution, anti-global-warming American would have to agree that we've been experiencing some pretty dramatic weather. This winter, storms seem to sweep through swaths of the country, dropping feet of snow along with freezing rain and sleet. Nasty stuff.
Recently, I have been immersed in memories of people and times long past, as I packed up to move from the apartment where we had lived for 18 years and raised our children. I had to go through our 'stuff' including boxes and boxes marked simply 'memories,' a couple of which hadn't been untaped since our last move. A lot of it had to go.
