I Want Weather Control...

...and I want it now.

Six inches of snow on the ground this morning, and the leaves on the trees haven't even all changed color yet, much less fallen off. This means hundreds of pounds of snow weighing down the branches of the maple tree out front, with some limbs cracking and falling off. I shook the snow off the low-hanging branches two hours before taking this picture. There's no keeping up, plus I can't possibly reach the upper branches, from which I have already lost two big limbs.

I was commenting to my daughter as I drove her through the slush to school: "There ought to be a law against having a snowstorm so early." But then, there's really no point having a law until we have the means to enforce it.

Of course, come to think of it, both the technology and the regulation will probably be applied initially to hurricanes, where it's much more needed, not annoying early snowstorms.
