Letter: What’s all of this talk about global warming?


Over the last few days, Mother Nature has made me realize what wonderful neighbors I have. As I get ready to take on the task of shoveling the snow from my driveway, I find one of my neighbors has already completed the job.

Four times.

While out doing my share of shoveling, I started to laugh and my wife asked what was funny. I told her I was thinking of Gov. Jay Inslee’s remarks about President Trump not commenting on global warming in his State of the Union message. I looked up at the snow falling and wished I had on more sunscreen.

I would not want to have a sunstroke in a snow storm. Yes, my neighbors are great neighbors.
