Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Global Warming???


Global Warming? A few weeks ago I might have believed it with temps in the 60's in early November! We didn't turn the heat on at our house until mid-November.

But since shortly before Thanksgiving it has been downright bitter. Today's high was nearly 20 degrees below the normal for this time of the year.


Quite frankly, it is all pretty cyclical anyway. Too hot, too cold, "I remember when I was a kid we had snow this high....".

Was it Mark Twain who said "everyone keeps talking about the weather but no one seems to be doing anything about it?"
As they say about Michigan weather - "if you don't like it, just wait a minute and it might change".
