Woke from hibernation, briefly

Seriously, now, whoever broke the weather just raise your hand and admit it. We won't hold it against you if you just FIX it already.

Normally, complaining about the cold is so gauche. Terrible Alaskan etiquette. But the whole record-breakingly crap spring thing frees us from that, don'tcha think? (Please read that "don'tcha" in your best Palin voice.) Of course, it is also providing a lot of climate change deny-ers (I just can't bring myself to call them "skeptics") material to offer up as proof that, in fact, that all that science is just a bunch of pointy-headed, un-American, feeding at the trough of research funding and conference attendance.

Having woken briefly after a few months, I'm crawling back into the cave until Spring gets its act together.
