This explains a LOT! Ah, if God only had Lamictal and Seroquel... or Topamax and Abilify... or.....lithium.

He must be cycling up. The weather is beautiful, at least in California, and the economy is recovering. I've even gotten a few pings on my resume. All definite signs of euphoria and classic symptoms of mania. Also a classic symptom of mania are the sudden outbursts of rage that interrupt the euphoria without warning - look at the thunderstorms and tornadoes.

I think the author is right and that God is a rapid-cycler. Especially lately - it's sunny and clear, then cold and rainy, then sweltering, then cold and rainy - all within a matter of weeks. You just never know what to wear, and you dasn't pack anything away for next year.

He's not on the happy side of hypomania here -- inch and a quarter hail. So much it piled up like snow. Yeesh.
