Crazy Weather Could Breed Crazy People

Erratic Conditions Screw with Seasonal Affective Disorder

By Kip Dinkshaw

Many folks in the east might be enjoying the strange, spring-like weather today before the increasingly cold wind and rain come tomorrow.

Some, though, might be on a emotional roller coaster.

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a mood disorder that strikes many during the darker, colder months. What happens, though, when global warming brings some random, warm, bright, sunny days during the winter months?

Well, those conditions have created another disorder: nature’s unpredictable terms syndrome (NUTS). Rapidly going from sad, to happy, to sad, to happy isn’t good for the mental state, apparently.

We should see cold, snowy conditions through Friday, then sunny, warm weather for the weekend. Temperatures will plummet again next week, sending people suffering from SAD and NUTS into an emotional tailspin.

So with warmer temperatures this weekend, expect a few crazy “laughers.” Then next week when winter returns without explanation, that’s when things could get dangerous.

Not only might you encounter some icy conditions, you could encounter some “crazies” who have snapped after another drastic change in the weather. Luckily, they’ll be too out of their minds to gather weapons, but these lunatics are still dangerous. Many are “biters.”

Be sure to pack gloves, umbrellas, pepper spray and tasers for those blustery days next week. If you get a clear shot at one of their heads, take it.

    I remember when I was a young girl, the first time I used a .44 was against someone with NUTS. He was trying to break into our house and mom was asleep, so I loaded the pistol and got him right between the eyes.
