Taken yesterday (Sunday), it was a balmy 64 degrees in January so we took advantage of “porch weather” to, that’s right, use the back porch. Bathed in winter sunlight and caressed by a warm south breeze, we played yet another highly suspenseful game of Connect 4.
Why is this wrong? It was 18 freakin’ degrees when I got out of bed that morning at 7:30. Here’s the proof, courtesy of my trusty outdoor thermometer that records the high and low from the last 12 hours (sorry about the blurry cam).
And it will be 11 degrees tonight. So now another day goes by when I stop trying to understand the physics of heated air masses, sunlight, moisture, and cold fronts. Fifty degree swings in less than a day? Why worry? Just never pack away your parka or your swim suit.
