The day before yesterday I paid $5.25 per gallon for gasoline to put fuel in my pickup truck and things will get even worse. What can we see? Basically, gas prices are crazy. Already, I have to drive around to find gas. Shortages are common. Biden blames Putin and the Ukraine war. I do not think that is the reason. After all, we never did buy a lot of petroleum products from russia. Something is going on.
The early mid part of May here in MN was unusually hot with temperatures reaching into the 80's.
I know that's no big thing depending where you live however,
when it happens here, expect violent weather. (Usual May temps are like in the 60's range)
For the first time in decades I witnessed quarter sized to golf ball sized hail and extreme wind gusts (no relation, ty )
not to mention the rain, my basement had some minor flooding which came in from the road washing into my driveway
which then floods under my garage door and into the basement through that door.
(Which the township/county will do nothing about after building up the crown of our main roadways. TYVM local politician!!)
I am expecting very hot weather this year however,
the area where I live has lots of water (Lakes ponds, and swamps) so usually we almost never get
really bad weather in the area....So here's to hoping that we are safe here.
It's already been bad enough with the first appearance of Mosquito swarms...In May. Ugh.
I'm preparing for the worst, that way I am almost always pleasantly surprised when nothing happens.
