It’s July 31, 2019. This is a time where the summer season (in the Northern hemisphere) should be at its height. In other climates, August would be an extension of July. I live in interior Alaska and the leaves on the trees in my backyard are already starting to turn yellow and falling off the trees. In July! This is just weird. I know climate change is still a controversial subject, but if there’s anywhere in the world that has seen climate change unequivocally, it’s Alaska.
Today is Wednesday (happy hump day, yall!) and that marks the mid week for most of us. Once I get through today, it’s a downhill slope through Thursday and Friday and I’ll be able to have my weekend again. My mental health forecast (ha!) seems fair, with a hint of clouds in my mind, but hopefully still sunny. As you can guess, I’ve been having a good last couple of days.
