In a Bit of a Funk

The weather is just plain weird. It's been overcast with thunderstorms for over a week here in CT. My pain level has raised exponetionally. It's also depressing to see gray outside every single day. My peonies didn't last as long as usual this year. It's beginning to really give me pause - this weather... I suspect there may be something seriously wrong. I don't know what, and I sure don't know how to fix it. I am doing what I can in my little universe. I have switched out all my light bulbs, I hang my laundry outside to dry, I purchased an energy efficient boiler system with a tankless water heater, I redid the electricity panel in my basement, I plant a garden and can some of my own veggies, and all electronics of any sort (tv, fridge, etc.) MUST be Energy Star qualified to live in my home. Oh - and let's not forget my reusable grocery bags. So - that's what I've done so far. But it's not enough. And I'm really worried. And I can't afford to purchase the technology to use solar power for my home. Or wind power. And I'm getting frightened. Because it's just not enough. What if every single person in the US did everything that I have done? Would that be enough? I don't think so. I think perhaps we waited too long - and wanted too much... too fast... with no thought of the consequences. And therefore, I am in a bit of a funk...
