Most rain there in 250 years they say and some folks are still fighting climate change concepts.

What a shame, I lost a kiln to floods but it was a blessing in disguise. Only wish I had raided it for all the spare parts but I was less knowledgeable back then.


I think the uneducated just see the words global warming and think sunny weather not more extreme weather. Amazing to see glacial evidence that some people still choose to ignore.

As in this world, we have had ice ages, desertification, floods(ah Noah) and pole reversals that mankind has had no part in. I am one of the Luddites that hold to a different notions.

If I make a pot I, have the right to do with it whatever I want. I hold to a Master Potter belief, but each to his own.

If you think it's bad now, the Book I read Sez's you ain't seen nothing yet.

But that's just me :)
