Sunday Sunshine - Winter Sun and Shadow

Today in the prairies global warming climate change struck hard, forcing temperatures to rise from the -30c range to a mere -3c. Residents of the region were shocked by the 1000% increase in ambient temperatures.

As temperatures soared to nearly the melting point. Some dared to venture outside!

Outside to witness disappearing snow and ice in this never before experienced extreme weather. They were seen desperately attempting capture what may have been their last opportunity to take in the beauty of the frozen landscape.

Some were forced to abandon their protective winter parkas and thick boots in the hellish heat. Hats and mitts were removed or even left inside as residents panicked.

City streets were clogged with people walking and exercising their pets. Parks were full of skaters, cross country skiers and children anxiously struggling to experience what may well be the last ever slide or glide. Confused children were seen grappling with suddenly exposed playground equipment.

Nature was in turmoil as squirrels were forced to awaken from winter nests and seek relief from the heat. Many species of birds were flitting about in confusion over the disruption of the natural cycles.

I was not able to personally locate any experts to explain this but I was witness to all these terrible and unsettily things.
