A Mild Taste of What may Come

After many recent days in the 70's, temperatures tonight falling to near zero or possibly lower in parts of New Jersey brings to mind the word bipolar. Just a week ago or so, with the temperature hovering at 75, still February, the thought occurred to me that little more than another 20 degrees could have meant the hottest day of the year, in the past. But I'm not ready to say the weather is bipolar just yet, because perhaps what we're experiencing now is just a mild taste of what is yet to come, as this century progresses.

How will fish react? I am concerned about our native brook trout with genetic lineage going back 12,000 years to the Wisconsin Glacier. A lot may depend on aquifers, on cold springs.
