The greenhouse effect might be causing the change, but it' s a cycle that' s been tracked for about a hundred years and in the past 20 years or so it just stopped cycling. And this is only affecting a small part of the world. People talk about greenhouse effect because they want to show how much concern they have about the future of the world. Don' t be as silly as them.
Spring just hits here, too. It' s so nice--windows open, the fresh air of changing seasons just lights me up. When I was younger this was the season for walking through the melting snow and ice, across roadsides, through square acre forests among the fields, I got so excited to be out in the wild. It' s tough to be in the city this time of year. Maybe I' 11 go camping soon !
In the city you don't have seasons. Spring rain does not make man-made structure grow, and wet roads are not inconvenient for you because you can move around in your car. Summer' s heat is no longer a problem and air-conditioning makes your rooms cool as autumn. The colors of the city don't change because nature is not powerful enough to change them as she changes the color of woods. Winter snow leaves nothing white but muddy roads.
Snow in Georgia is a funny thing. We have been having 24 hours weather news on the TV for the past week, just because there is a threat of snow. Schools have closed based on these predic- tions, and all we got was rain. But the rule is that if it sticks to the ground, school is canceled. It would be a great excuse to get the day off. People rush to the grocery store to buy milk and bread-- I don't know why, but they do. When I was growing up here we used to get one or two big snow- falls a year, but there has not been any for the last few. Damn global wanning.
It' s been so nice. I am of the firm belief that in February we get the day like cool autumn season in November... In February it' s like a warm period that' s been getting stronger and longer every year since my boyhood, and it gets defeated by the final blowing snowstorm of March at least once, but any- one can survive(生存)those snowstorms, since we all know they' 11 be gone in a few days.
