Weather or Not

So, a New Year dawns on Beaver Island. Other than the Four Horses of the Apocalypse, what will 2003 bring? I suppose we will have to wait and see from the safety of our bunkers.

The weather, however, is much easier to predict. What you see is what you get. A little bit colder than December, which by all standards was exceptionally warm, and not much more precipitation. Drought? You ask. Perhaps. Lingering effects of global warming? Maybe. Either way, long gone are the thirty-foot snow drifts, snow from November to April and any school kid's hope of snow days. Why? Ask the Horsemen. At any rate, 4-wheelers are in; snow machines are out. The Twelve Days of Christmas have been replaced by Seven Drunken Nights, and if the coming year continues the spiral of the previous two, the Island's population could jump to over twenty thousand. Good night and good news.
