New Yorker: Storms brewing

These clouds over my place on Friday produced no measurable rain.

Continuing with the subject of abnormal and dangerous weather, Elizabeth Kolbert has a piece in the June 13 & 20 issue of the New Yorker on the recent extreme weather and how it is exactly what has been predicted as a consequence of global warming. The article is free to non-subscribers.

    The storm that you photographed here was the same one that *destroyed* Mark’s garden in Charlotte. The hail, which ranged from pebble- to baseball-size, literally shredded and beat down everything. He called me right after it happened and was devastated. The storm literally ripped Christmas lights off trees that Mark had mounted with horseshoe tacks!

    One suggestion for using CELERY: A traditional home-style Italian salad is celery salad. If you don’t have any fresh greens for a salad, cut up celery and put it in a small bowl (I think it works best in individual little bowls). Add some chopped walnuts (or almonds or peanuts or other nuts). Add some grated parmesan cheese. Add some pepper and (optional) salt. Dress with a simple olive oil and vinegar dressing (or whatever you like). Eat it at room temperature for best celery flavor (very aromatic). Cheers!
