Climate Change Update

This is the same cherry tree that I photographed last year at around this time:

As that link shows, this tree was blooming on February 17 last year. Clearly, there are no blossoms yet. From the condition of the buds:

It looks like it will be a few more days before they blossom.

I guess there's no global warming this year...

Nope, definitely not. I mean, we just had an ice storm in Kirkland, so we're actually entering an ICE AGE!!1!11!!!

Or something.

Yes, and it looks like we'll be having a few days of snow - in February! We must have been crazy to think the world is getting warmer...
