One of the problems of
being possessed by lower body un-wellness at this time
of the year is the ambient temperature of the outdoors.
It's that sort of temperature that permits long, happy
hours of bonding with the earth without necessarily
having to wear socks and without risking some sort of
near death experience from heat. And too with the
overcast out there, these days are hatless days, which
means a Gardener can feel kind of normal.
By about the beginning of December it gets to be rougher and
rougher. Extremities need protection, and it's all rather a
nightmare until sometime in March. Then a person looks at
the long range weather forecasts. None of them are
encouraging. The Radical Weather Forecasters are all excited
by the weak El Nino and they claim it's sure sign the polar
regions will advance south down the Western Appalachians and
poke at us all.
