Global Warming Affects Scouting
We did not earn a Zero Hero patch on our winter camping outing last weekend. It's actually been three years now with temperatures that did not dip below Zero Fahrenheit which is required to earn the patch.
Maybe this global warming thing is true. I might need to ask the council to change the award requirements from Fahrenheit to Celsius. I guess that would help move us along to the metric system too.
Just today, I was outside with my 1st class scout son in just our t-shirts finally taking down the Christmas lights. It was almost 40 degrees, I think - downright balmy. If this keeps up, we'll be having mosquitos in March and snowplow drivers in the unemployment line. We already have ski areas around here hurting pretty bad.
Well, I don't know about you, but I'm hoping winter 07-08 sees massive snow storms and frigid temperatures. We still have a chance for some snow in the next two months, but it doesn't look promising to me. The PLC planned a troop meeting in February to be sledding, so we have our fingers crossed.
