Hot Blob Monday

1a

First seabirds started falling out of the sky, washing up on beaches from California to Canada.

Then emaciated and dehydrated sea lion pups began showing up, stranded and on the brink of death.

A surge in dead whales was reported in the same region, and that was followed by the largest toxic algal bloom in history seen along the Californian coast. Mixed among all that there were population booms of several marine species that normally aren’t seen surging in the same year.

Plague, famine, pestilence and death was sweeping the northern Pacific Ocean between 2014 and 2015.

This chaos was caused by a single massive heatwave, unlike anything ever seen before. But it was not the sort of heatwave we are used to thinking about, where the air gets thick with warmth. This occurred in the ocean, where the effects are normally hidden from view.

    More bad climate change news while the money-grubbers pillage onward.

    Never since the dawn of time has a species demanded extinction more than humanity, fucking up everything they touch for a buck.

    I think that Marine heat skipped over here to Michigan. I’m so sick of high humidity!!!

    Cloudy today, might get more rain. Everything outside is happy just from the 2.43 inches. My lilacs perked up, leaved uncurled, grass is starting to look less brown.

    81 minutes to the Birch & Barley via first Shopko for my statin prescription refill and then the optometrist’s office to pick up my repaired spectacles. This is the reverse of yesterday, down Grand Avenue and then back along Bishop Blvd. Not quite as hot today.

    Having a seafood salad with lots of water and a Black Butte porter.

      Daily total of 111 minutes to Sloan; slow from the B&B to Sloan.

      Day 2: 135+111=246 minutes already.

      Ambled home where along the way rush is in progress and a big crew is finishing making ready for the new pavement over the areas affected by the sewer replacement.

      Back, arms and right foot are noticeable.

    Did not do anything except a load of clothes, protesting 98 temps, indoors.
