Susan Peterson: Mother Nature: She is scorned

Hey, simply questioning, did anyone examine in with Mother Nature to let her know that we are able to solely deal with 100-year floods right here in Boulder? I imply, I do know she’s fairly offended about the best way we’ve been treating her, so I’m simply apprehensive that she might not have seen that Boulder can’t afford something larger than a 100-year flood, particularly on the proposed CU South website.

I don’t know, it appears to me like she’s been sending us smoke indicators all summer time saying, “Hey, you better treat me right, these wildfires are coming your way!”, however that’s most likely simply me.

Anyway, possibly we must always get two councilmembers to get in contact with Mother Nature? Perhaps they might get her to ship her 500-year floods elsewhere… how about Erie? I’ll guess if she knew we couldn’t deal with one other flood just like the one we had in 2013, she’d again off. After all, I can’t think about she’s nonetheless pissed-off about Boulder voting final 12 months to maintain burning fossil fuels simply to keep up our carbon footprint. I can’t think about she’d maintain a grudge.

It may very well be potential that Mother Nature will allow us to kick the can down the street to future generations once more. Maybe the following technology will hearken to her the place we didn’t. After all, that is their downside, and passing the buck has executed fairly effectively for our backside line up to now.

But then once more, I’ve heard, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Maybe Council ought to get in contact with Mother Nature, simply to verify she’s cool with the entire flood factor. And so long as they’re speaking to her, possibly they might ask her about sending some higher air high quality our means. I’m positive she’d get a very good chortle out of that.
