I dont know if it is true but it sure seems that the weather affects how busy the ED is. Hot sticky nights seem like a good time to stab someone or to have a major MI and the place is packed, but these frozen nights, the ED is a ghost town. Well, with the exception of some of our regulars and homeless two carbon beverage lovers. The real excitement is when the psyche cases start coming in. This is usually the time of year when they come out of hibernation and begin to act up. You know they are crazy right away because the drunks start moving away from them. I used to think that it was the shorter days that caused people to go nuts in winter, but when I went out into the cold to get into my car and froze my but off, I realized what it was, all that "Crazy Global warming BS".
