This is my post for #freewriters Wednesday prompt rain maker hosted by @mariannewest

When people think of Florida, they think of the beach, sunshine, and hurricanes. The first two hold true but it seems to me that we are no longer in the hurricane state. I might be counting my chickens here but we have not had a major rain maker this year and the season is almost over. In my opinion, Louisanna has had more than their share this year and last.

I asked my husband today if he thought we were getting fewer thunderstorms than we used to get. He agreed with me, we do not get as many as we used to get. It makes me think about the theory that the earth is shifting on its axis. I am not sure where I heard this but I do know that it was many years ago.

I missed a couple of days writing because I cleared the cache on my computer, by doing this, I was no longer logged in. I saved the keys to an external hard drive but when I tried to login it kept telling me that I had an invalid pw. I finally got the right pw, then it wanted me to confirm it, it told me they did not match. I talked to my son and he told me what I was doing wrong. Thank God for techy kids.

We fished today, I had a pompano almost to the boat but it got off. Other than that I caught 3 small sharks and had a very large bull shark on for maybe 2 minutes before he broke me off. My husband caught 2 pompano.

The magnetic poles wander, but actual pole flippage is exceedingly improbable. The rotational axis also wobbles, but doesn't seem likely to vary dramatically any time soon. I think there is reason to believe climate change is occurring, although the degree to which humans are responsible is very much up for debate. The predictions of global warming climate change fearmongers have been less than accurate.

I do believe that weather has cycles, like every so many years a place will have a drought or we could go several years without a hurricane, then we could get them for several years. Not sure if this is the same as people call global warming, the warming could be just another cycle.

There does seem to be a historical warming/cooling cycle. Historical records show medieval vineyards in portions of England where they do not grow grapes well now, and apparently Greenland was actually green enough for agriculture a thousand years ago. We are technically still in an ice age with year-round polar ice caps where we find evidence of frozen forests once growing that far north. But I don't want to discount the effects of pollution either.
