I have an extensive number of articles in the "WEATHER RELATED" folder in the Hamilton Library Local History Collection. Wasn't it Mark Twain who said everyone talks about the weather but no one can do anything about it? We have been (and are) experiencing very strange weather events here in the 12th year of the 21st century. We have had Al Gore types assuring us that we are on the road to climactic disaster if we don't control our atmosphere with less pollution. Indeed, "Global Warming" is now a very prominent subject in our 21st century vocabulary.
