I’m in Mammoth Lakes, CA.  There’s still a lot of snow up here–the higher elevations are pretty much covered with it, and in today’s weather report, it says it will be 35 degrees tonight with possible snow above 9000 feet tomorrow.  It’s the end of June, so my granddaughters are asking why it might snow in the summer time.

At first I just told them to blame Al Gore–after all, in addition to inventing the internet, I believe he is also responsible for “Global Warming” or, as it is now called “Climate Change.”

It’s interesting to hear discussions about all of the weird weather that’s been happening around the world in the last couple of years.  People have very short memories.

A few years ago, we were being told to prepare for the coming ice age…

There have been other years when the natural disasters happened with the same amount of intensity and frequency, so there may be some merit to the argument that it’s all cyclical.

I don’t know who’s right, and to be absolutely honest, I don’t care!

What I DO know is that God is almost certainly going to destroy this earth long before we humans have with all of our meddling and irresponsibility.  To sort of misquote Bill Cosby, “God brought this world into being, and He can take it out whenever He wants to.”

It seems to me that we’d all be better off thinking about the end of the world that God will bring about whenever he’s ready and start preparing our hearts and souls for that glorious and frightening event that is surely going to happen.
