I saw that! The photos were stunning. Also in San Miguel de Allende. Nothing here in Pátzcuaro. Although we had hail a few days ago during a rainstorm, there was not enough to accumulate.

I have friends who have a store in Tlaquepaque and an apartment above the store.. The place was full of water and ice that came via the drains of the sink and showers and the toilets so there was so much ice and water that the sewers were backing back up to the first floor of houses on Juarez in Tlaquepaque. Unbelievalble. Some places had 1m50 of ice , that is about 5 feet of ice.. We get a lot of hail in Chiapas and it is common for the hail to be may be a foot high but 4 or 5 feet? I have never heard of that..
My friends sent me videos of their place and they have a lot of water dammage in their store.

So they changed the name from global warming to fit the agenda?

One is the cause; the other, the effect. The result is the current extremes in weather that we are experiencing, and the resultant effects upon life forms on the planet. At the moment, there is a shortage of Christmas trees and potatoes due to climate change. Some of us are old enough to remember migrating birds darkening the sky, frogs and/or nightcrawlers making roads slippery, no shortage of seafood, roasted chestnuts, elm trees, Lombardy poplars being more common, etc. Now citrus are in danger.
Extinction is forever, and we are on the short list.

The climate has been changing ever since the earth was created, it has never been and never will be static. The notion that we can control the temperature of the earth by paying more taxes is insane.

Maybe we are living in paradise but we have more citrus in our own backyard than we can give away for free. We give it to the garbage men, the mail man, virtually everyone.

Its funny you bring up Christmas trees. On Sunday they had some cut trees from Oregon US at our local supermarket. Nice looking trees, but we opted to drive two hours up into our Mexican forest and cut our own tree. It is a federal program where there are massive planned forests. They plant many many more trees than they 'harvest'. Selling the trees this time of year pays for the project.

I don't know that I buy into climate change (caused principally by man's actions), but I don't care much for pollution. I think mankind should do everything it can (within reason) to assure itself and the rest of the planet bountiful fresh air, water etc.

In school I rubbed elbows with all sorts of 'scientists' who depended on the national science foundation and such for funding for all sorts of out of this world speculative research. It was in some ways irresponsible, and all too often the results of their research made certain that their research was perpetual.

I've done a good bit of scuba diving in my life. Over those years I have been to some beautiful places with incredible reefs. Unfortunately I have seen some of those reefs die away. I have also seen some reefs thrive. Change happens - often without any human intervention.
