I’m All Thumbs (and fingers)

“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.”

The Santa Anna winds are blowing and are forecast for next week in the LA area. We are also having high temperatures into the 80s by Monday. We don’t believe in Winter in LA. I do not like the Santa Annas. They are dry, hot winds that make me edgy and itchy. They can promote wild fires.

Is a thumb a finger? A thumb is one of our five digits but we call it a thumb and not a finger. It is good we have thumbs because they enable us to do many things but if we had all thumbs we would be clumsy. Thus the expression “I’m all thumbs! ”

Fingers and thumbs are called digits. I wish I could perform some prestidigitation and make the Santa Annas disappear. ALAKAZAM!

      I had heard it was warm back East this winter and that it was because of our El Nino out here. Southern California has not gotten very much El Nino yet, it has mainly stayed in the North. And California did get a lot of snow in the Sierras. Thank You Dan. 🙂
