For the last few months, weather discussions have been intense. For several weeks, the temperature was in the 90s. That gave to several weeks where every day seemed dreary if not rainy (but it WAS cooler!) Then discussions centered on East Coast vacation spots, as hurricanes drew near. Would our favorite accommodations be okay? Before long, folks will debate how much snow we will get. May each change in the weather create two responses: a commitment to care for the earth, in every sense of the word. And an appreciation for creation and the four seasons! (BTW – you should ideally get your flu shot by the end of this month).
