Finally back over 20 degrees celcius

Since Wednesday here in Townsville, the temperature has dipped below 20' C and on thursday we had our lowest EVER maximum of 13.9' C. Today the maximum was back up to 20' C. I blame all those internal migrants from Melbourne bringing their depressing cold rainy weather. On the other hand, I could blame global warming for triggering a severe antarctic blast that permeated all the way to the tropics, as temperatures differentials suck away the cold air.

You will have found that there is no conceivable weather event that cannot be blamed on anthropogenic global wamring.

Hotter? AGW.
Colder? AGW.
Wetter? AGW.
Drier? AGW.
More plagues of flesh-eating locusts? AGW.
Flesh-eating locusts vanishing from their usual habitat? AGW.

Apropos of nothing, here is a poem I found out there in cyberspace:

Willie had a purple monkey climbing on a yellow stick,

And when he sucked the paint all off it made him deathly sick;

And in his latest hours he clasped that monkey in his hand,

And bade good bye to earth and went into a better land.

Oh! no more he'll shoot his sister with his little wooden gun;

And no more he'll twist the pussy's tail and make her yowl, for fun.

The pussy's tail now stands out straight; the gun is laid aside;

The monkey doesn't jump around since little Willie died.
