During the Triassic
Period, where I am now would have been considerably closer to where I
was born, and no days of the week. There probably was no ice at
either the north or south poles, and here in Kentucky it was most likely
dry with occasional rain and clear nights. We'd have to wait a
couple more million years before we saw swamps and tropical down pours.
And a few more million years for an ice age.
Back then of course we'd have had
Gingkoes. As well there would have been conifers and trees that look
like palm trees and there might even have been seed bearing ferns. As
mammals we would have been few, or world dominated by reptiles. But there is
no reason to assume we'd have known frost or snow. Most wonderful would have
been the sight of the very first creatures with backbones that could fly.
