happy_terd, I think you really believe in global warming. You're just playing everyone else for suckers in hopes that no one will take action against it; then when the time is right, you'll advertise your desert home as waterfront property!

Scheming rat! I'm onto your game!

I would wish people would not be told till the last minute. I would not have time to see my family because they live over 900 miles away so I wouldn't even try to get to them. I even doubt the phones would work after it is known, no utilities, no gas, water or electric. No one will go to work. I would quietly sit with my animals and neighbors and tell stories by the campfire. I would set my fish free by the spring behind the house. I would let Lavander, my chinchilla, run wild. I would take the collars off Willow and Hammy my dog and cat. Since I don't know if this is a World-End thing or just man-kind end thing but I would try to make life and/or death as easy for them as possible as they depend on me to take care of them. I'm not a kid and I never was one for a wild party even when I was young. Other than not going in to work my life would not change.
pagansoul, you warm my heart. You say with calm, simple words what I feel. You loose those you love by giving their last joy: your parting gift. Saying their names fish, Lucilla, Willow and Hammy you find the confort to stay on your path.

You deserve an happy ending pagansoul, generous soul. The next morning, when you wake up, you find them around you, asleep in your warmth. Incredulous, with moist eyes like mine that will tell the story to my beloved, you go to the spring behind the house and fish jumps for you to see.
