Minnesota was real cold when I got home. California was real wet. And a host of other changes had come over Earth. The United States Weather Service had taken care of the really bad stuff, stopping every hurricane in the last five years, and they’d even made a dent in the tornado action on the Great Plains. They’d done a good job stabilizing things, but the global climate was a lot cooler than it had been before Yosemite fell. I don’t mind that one bit, but the Weather Service still has to give Florida special attention to keep all the orange groves from dying. Thank God they’re more reliable than the Postal Service.
