CLIMATE CHANGES

I live in a country where people love to complain and moan whole day long about the weather. After a few years of the Global Warming invention it got colder and colder in areas where it had always been warm, where it used to snow now it only rains, even the once who had created this expression realized that it became ridiculous. And what did they do ? they changed the "Global Warming" into "Climate changes" which can more easily explain if you wonder about your climate up and downs.

If we have a cold winter it's due to the climate change. If the winter is less cold than expected it is also due to the climate change. When in the past you didn't even know if it rained or snowed in the next city, now you know if China has too much snow or not enough rain. Indeed the world became global but not necessary in warming up !

Concerning my little world, thanks to the climate changes, I soon will have flippers instead of feet and fishes will cross my way instead of cats and dogs. These are now dedicated to fall on my head.

My umbrella is permanently wet and I have to jump like a kangaroo over the puddles on the street which is a very good gymnastic for my health. I am full time busy to dry one of my cats, fortunately only two go out when it rains. Thanks to them I also know if it rains during the night because they love to jump almost in my face and wash it with their wet fur. I wonder if this is good for my skin. I will see the result in a couple of years, when a young, handsome man asks me for a date.

Last year we suddenly had snow thanks to the climate changes ! White cotton like stuff which fell from heaven when I was a child. I had forgotten how it felt like, I hadn't seen one snowflake for years !

Unfortunately the climate hasn't changed enough to bring some summer like weather in this country. There are only two things to do, or emigrate or wait that the climate changes ! Meanwhile I look for sunshine somewhere else and in a country where everybody complaints about the heat !

I will soon be complaining about the heat but can,t believe in climate change until I can look out my window and see snow flakes.

Gattina I think it is human nature to complain about the weather no matter what it is! The last cartoon was so funny..lol..I loved it!

Ann said...

here in NZ, everyone moans about the weather too. But we can't be blamed. The weather has been bad.

H said...

We English have a reputation for talking about the weather a lot, but that might be because it can change completely *within* a day, not just between them!

Thom said...

I think the weather is something everyone every where complain about :)

Sue said...

Really enjoyed your weather-related post AND the cartoons, too.

Where do you live? The USA had a mega mambo hugely HOT summer everywhere this year...and I'd gladly change places with you!! I hate the sun and love the rain.

There's a drawing on my Wed post you might enjoy.

Kat said...

Guilty as charged! I complain about the winter from about this time of year until about June.

Nice to know I'm not alone!

I don't think South Carolina has been effected yet. It is pretty much always the same year in and year out.

Loree said...

An interesting post. I don't know about global warming. Maybe it's only happened here. Our winters seem to get warmer every year.

I love the way you always find cartoons to match your story which was hilarious but don't migrate to sunny Queensland because we have had rain for 2 weeks.......most unusual. Climate change?? Or is it only La Nina which we don't have as often as El Nono.

A Lady's Life said...

So true But no one says anything about the asteroid or whatever that will be missing us by a hair as it passes by. Could this thing also not cause gravitational and weather changes?
And here we are blaming cars and industry and cow farts hahahaha
I can't complain much I love all kinds of weather. Change is good except when the bones begin to hurt. Then you complain. lol

Jo said...

how cute! especially the last cartoon! ah, we all love to complain about the weather ... even if it is sunny & warm ...

Melli said...

You know... honestly... George Carlin used to give the most accurate weather report there was! Dark tonight with a chance of sunlight in the morning!

Global Warming... now Climate Change! Well my goodness! I HOPE the climate changes! What a boring world we would be if every day was the same! :)

Judie said...

Waaaa! I was going to use that George Carlin remark about the weather! I live in Arizona, and it's hot! We KNOW it's hot, so no one says much about it unless it also becomes HUMID, then we moan!

Splendid Little Stars said...

LOL! Well, at least it seems, that "climate changes" have their health benefits for you--increased aerobic activity (drying cats & puddle jumping)and even facials!

Pondside said...

That was great!
It's been raining a lot up here lately and I'll start to grow mold any time now. Yesterday's paper warned that we'll have snow this year and everyone's wailing. Climate change/Global warming....it's here.

Gattina, I adored this post. I read it twice. The first like facts and the second time like fiction. This would make a wonderful story for children.

Really clever word visualization.

I enjoyed my stop here for Alphabe-Thursday very much.

Thank you for linking.
