. 200,000+ lives lost. in the billions or trillions. Does it matter?
Stronger earthquake in Chili. Significantly fewer human lives lost. No counting the other critters’ lives lost. Property damages estimates . . . not in yet.
Snow in the Northeast not seen for decades or centuries. Who’s counting? Transportation corridors @ a standstill. Aircraft circling airports. Then they finally touch down 90 miles from the destination only to refuel & proceed onward. Passenger inconvenience staggering.
Windstorms knock down power lines & trees blown into residences. Rooflines sag under the weight. Property damage not accounted for as yet. Thousands of citizens & customers without power for days & days.
Rain storms on the eastern seaboard inundate cities & countryside alike. More rain in the Mid West. Too much rain. Overflowing rivers & floodplains. Topping the levees & temporary sandbag brigades. Making a muddy mucky mess of communites & neighborhoods. Where does it end?
Drought in the southwest. SoCA nearly outta water & so dry the whole region has burned up a time or 2 in recent memory. Then, tuh-duh, gallons & buckets of rain falling on slopes & hillsides void of vegetation from fires of a season or 2 ago. Then ground saturation causes slopes to slide into backyards & on major thoroughfares & scenic routes. Statics go on & on.
Prescious fuel hidden away from easy pickins. Down deep in the earth where its difficult & expensive to obtain. & when it’s burned, so inconveniently leaving waste & residue behind nobody knows what to do with the waste.
Buzzillions spent by getaway places & destination vacation Shangri-Las promising warm, sunny skies & clean beaches forever. Umbrella drinks for all brought down by inclement weather.
What’s next . . . volcanic erruption? Scheew Doggies. Sometimescan’t do anything right. Good thing I’m wearin’ the Green today. OpalK9 OTJ
