Back in action

I’m back from my battle with a cold and flu.  It looks like winter is clawing at us, trying to hold on.  Fortunately, spring is inevitable.

There is still a carpet of snow on the ground despite the massive melt that has occurred.  It’s ironic that in spite of all the control that humans have exerted over nature, we are still at the mercy of the weather.  That may be one of the unreachable frontiers for science and maybe that is a good thing.

Just imagine if we could control the weather.  Would we be like children tugging and pulling at clouds or would it be a peaceful cooperative enterprise?
