"We have a tendency to say, 'Well, if it's cold here; the world must be getting colder.' Well, this is not true," he said. "We live on a huge planet. It's a complex system, and that natural variability that's always been with us continues, even though the longer-term trend is toward warming."

Clay Township borders part of Genoa and the departments regularly assist one another with mutual aid calls.
