Scuba Suit Saturday

1a

record start to summer ice melt in Greenland this year has drawn attention to the northern ice sheet. We will have to wait to see if 2019 continues to break ice-melt records, but in the rapidly warming Arctic the long-term trends of ice loss are clear.

Antarctica is an icy giant compared to its northern counterpart. The water frozen in the Greenland ice sheet is equivalent to around 7 metres of potential sea level rise. In the Antarctic ice sheet there are around 58 metres of sea-level rise currently locked away.

Like Greenland, the Antarctic ice sheet is losing ice and contributing to unabated global sea level rise. But there are worrying signs Antarctica is changing faster than expected and in places previously thought to be protected from rapid change.

    Took a shower last night. Dyed my hair this morning and when I went to wash the crap off in the bathtub, only hot water came out. That means, NO SHOWER TONIGHT! Holy crap, that’s a catastrophe.

    Brian remodeled the john, installed the tub etc., but he’s still out of town, not due back until Sunday night, or Monday, and Jill said I shouldn’t bother him because he’s going to be stressed with the wedding Saturday and everything he has to do this coming week. It would take him 3 minutes…3 FUCKIN’ MINTUES to adjust the cold/ hot.

    She said to call Pete, which I did. He’ll come by either tonight, or tomorrow and he said he’ll figure it out. He’s no plumber, but gd Brian is! Brian is a jack of all trades, he can do anything that goes into remodeling, or building an effin’ house. He would know exactly what to do.

    Does Jill actually listen to herself when she says shit like that to me? I should have asked Brian myself, texted him in Virginia, he would have told me when he could dash over when he gets home.

    It’s a one handle thing with a small hole in it, maybe for an allen wrench. With my luck, our luck, probably one of those weird-shaped allen wrenches.

    If Pete doesn’t make it, I’ll put some water in the tub and wait until it cools off then stand in there and wash up. Can’t sit down, I’d have trouble getting back up. But better to wash up in there rather than in front of the bathroom sink, probably making a mess by getting water on the floor. Whatever.

    The young neighbors who bought the abandoned house next door hooked up their little boat Thursday and took off. Been gone ever since so when I go out for my walks, it’s nice to know there’s no one home there. When they’re there, or outside, I walk around on the other side of my property. They have a dog they let run around and I don’t like it to see me because then it starts to bark, then they know I’m out there.

    PETE JUST CALLED! He’s heading over right now to see if he can fix the shower water!!!

    A pair of butterflies playing chase games. A pigeon on the station roof accompanied by a small white butterfly flitting about. A couple of Insectivors. Just 30 minutes to the Old Post Office.
