We are pretty lucky as in winter we rarely turn on the heater but for a few nights during our cold season.

Is that the one during which the temperature drops below 70 degrees for approximately six minutes every January? Razz

We're finally getting our Summer here, just in time for school to start. Temps are in the mid- 80's, but cooling down quite a bit a night.

I will indeed. (never been)

This is a company that I only serve on their board, but do not work for.

They have kindly given the board a LOT of free time. Cool

Over a week of 70's and 80's in Chicago....in March!! I will need to turn the air conditioner on tonight just to sleep. Trees are over a month ahead of schedule, flowers are blooming and my grapes are budding....

Typically the last "frost date" in northern Illinois is mid-May....wow!

The question is: when do we get pimped with the final blast of winter? I'm thinking it's gotta be coming at some point, although the lowest high temp projected for the next ten days is 60. No complaints!

You know, you could celebrate the weather by joining us tomorrow, or another time... Wink

A week of 70's (like last week), and a week of 80's (like this week) in Saginaw would make for a pleasant June or September. Usually, I'm looking to March as a month of good snow and a little extra daylight for some XC skiing after work, and then in the 40's to melt the snow at the end of the month.

This, for sure, is the freakiest weather I've seen in my lifetime.

Trees are budding out here. Daffodils in full bloom. Easily 4-5 weeks ahead of normal. I don't know whether to be happy or extremely worried. Confused

In the past, I have seen 5 inches of snow as late as early May, and flurries in early June, here in Michigan. I know that this warm snap may not last. This is just really strange. I just hope we won't have to pay for it with an August full of 60-degree days of drizzle (seen that before, too).


Stay thirsty my friends.

I gave up and had to turn on the AC today; house was 77 degrees. AC in March in DC is ridiculous. Mad

Our house got up over 80 this past week. Turned on the AC for 3 days. If you think AC in DC in March is ridiculous, what's that say for Michigan??

At least we are back to pseudo-reality now, highs today in the upper 50's. That's 30 degrees lower than last Wednesday, but still 15 degrees above average.

Now we can actually open the windows for sleeping, and turn the AC off!


Stay thirsty my friends.

Today's forecast is for 93 but the humidity will make it feel like 106. May break a record set in 1941.

Ironically, I learned a new term today: vin de soif or literally, a thirst-quenching wine.

According to the billboard across the street from my office, it was 91 degrees at 8 a.m. today. Ridiculous.

The super hot weather is bad enough, but we're in the middle of a severe drought. It hasn't rain this month here at all, and none is predicted for the rest of the month! Between the 1st of March and the end of May, we had a total of 1.62 inches of rain. Most of that came in one 30 minute downpour. Pastures are burning up, and farmers are already starting to give hay to their livestock while hay yields are about 50-60% of normal. We are scr##d!
