Record Low Temperatures and Natural Gas Shortage
« on: February 03, 2011, 09:12:47 PM »
Here in New Mexico, we are having record low temperatures (in fact it was colder here than in some places in Alaska last night. LOL), and because of our normal warm weather, we simply don't have the infrastructure necessary to deal with this. In fact, we now have a shortage of natural gas because of the low temperatures. This means that some people can't turn on their heaters and pipes are bursting. This is all just so strange for New Mexico. Please keep everyone here in your prayers, especially the elderly, the sick, the homeless, and the very young.

"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

Lord, have mercy.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov
