Supposedly, it is Spring. Some people would disagree as we have seen this type of warm weather before and then we have a blizzard. Generally on Mother's Day. Thanks Mom, have some snow.
At the same time as the warm temps, we are having thunderstorms, from the East. We don't normally get weather from the East. So now there is fire danger even though a lot of the mountains around us have visible snow on them. So to remind folks, here are the fire sites to watch: active fires & fire warnings for the entire USA.
Need To Buy Something?
First off, buy products made in America, not China. If you want to get America back to work, you have to buy products made by Americans.
Reduce your monthly cooling bills by replacing your home's roof with white-colored material, use native plants for your landscaping instead of lawns, remove all Juniper plants (they swallow more water than you can imagine), and if you must have a green lawn (for children or pets) use an artificial material.
Going "green" is a buzzword marketing people use to indicate whatever they want you to buy, while in reality it means that the product can be reused in a way that does not add to landfills. For example, Metals can be reused easily while Plastics (resin) requires special types of equipment to process - Only buy products your area can recycle. And please, buy American Made items or do you not care that people are out of work? Read labels, make a difference.
