  1. So true, Jim. Here in NM, we have had no rain for many weeks, with very hard. constant winds, and several “small” fires already. This is just the beginning of massive changes–all this crap about human trivia–elections, economy, increasing violence–are nothing compared to what is happening to the planetary system.
