The bears come out

A friend remarked a couple of years ago that the season had come to buy prime waterfront property on Hudson Bay...and damn if he isn't right.

I was just reading that the Alpine bears are out of hibernation about 8 weeks early and are surprising the hell out of skiers. Meanwhile, in Quebec Province, the blue herons haven't bothered to fly south to Florida this year.

A European Commission report on Italy says the south of the peninsula will become too hot for summer holidays by 2070 and will lack drinking water.

So it's a fine season to purchase prime beach front property on the Gulf of Bothnia too. Saint Tropez? Ha. Vaasa, baby.
