Not a Coppertone day here but the temperature hit 70F. As in D.C. the cherry blossoms were in bloom at Brooklyn Bot. Gdn. and the bees were earning overtime pay pollinating in Jan, :O

A few blocks from me is a saltmarsh nature center that the city built on a natural saltmarsh that was used for years to dump cars and many thinks some people may have been dumped there too. The salt marsh was the site of Gerritsen Grist Mill way back.

The saltmarsh is the home to many water birds (herons, egrets, gulls, cormarants etc.) and is alson on the major N.E. migratory route.

I went there today to see what I could see/snap ( no interesting birds today)

I am addicted to talk radio and on one station they were discussing the reasons for this weather. Many people like to think it is due to execssice industrialization, some blame it on the "el ninion " weather effect and one person said this is a regular cycle of the earth and has bee occuring well befor all the industrialization. He attributes it to the relase of methane gasses from annimals which have been releasing methane gases in their droppings and flatulations. Remember the great plains were said to be the home of heards of buffalo as far as the eye can see!

Thats a lot of poop and gas being released prior to refineries, steel mills and tire factories.

Nice photos Bill. The weather is really changing fast and it would be intresting to be able to see what the world will look like in just 50 years. Guess I'll be gone by then but I'll see a lot of it.
