Three thoughts, then it's over to you.
1. You know, I probably ought to get out rake those leaves pretty soon. I'd hate to miss the chance at that chore if a big wind were to blow in.
2. I don't suppose the forecast calls for wind. Or is that wishful thinking?
3. When I sat in on an analysis of what global warming would mean for the Inland Northwest, the state's climatologist Philip Mote said one result would be rainy Novembers (as opposed to snowy), which are bad for the snowpack. That, in turn, would have implications for water storage and hydropower. Just sayin.
