Personally, I think Mother Nature would be easy to work with under such circumstances as we have today. Every mother has a nurturing side and I believe there is no exception here with good old Mother Nature. Maybe she does not know how inconvenient this cold weather has been for us. I think she would be willing to negotiate a long these lines.
I would like to select the politicians to be on this committee myself. I have my own list and would be happy to set it up. The reason is, I know that when one of those politicians throws his chest out and begins one of those mind-numbing speeches, and you know they will, they always do, it will irritate Mother Nature. Boy, would I love to see her light into one of them. Nothing is more awesome than the fury of Mother Nature.
Besides, nothing is more idiotic than men or women, big in their own eyes, pontificating on things they cannot control as if they had any say in it.
I think if you cannot control something as commonplace as the weather you had better find out who can and align yourself up with that person.
The Bible tells us exactly who that is. “The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet” (Nahum 1:3).
I do not have to deal with Mother Nature, who incidentally does not exist; I deal with God who controls all things and I am happy to have him control my life as well.
