One thought on “Monday one-liners”

  1. USFWS “rehydrating” portions of the Great Dimal Swamp?

    32 yrs ago it was full on my way to FT Eustis, VA.
    That was a year of rain and snow.

    But “rehydrating” during this period(s) of “global warming?”

    The evapotranspiration process ought to knock that project for a loop!!! Could that grant money be used for something more useful??

    But what does a pilot and forester know about the current daze weather, eh?
