Applauding a Positive Anomaly
Posted by The Diatribe Guy on February 12, 2009
I have lamented the bitter cold in Wisconsin this winter (and cooler temps overall for well over a year now) while I’ve looked upon data that has told me that the rest of the globe (and even other parts of the U.S.) has experienced warmer temperatures.
I am pleased to present the following chart, from NOAA, for the first week of February:
If one looks closely at my particular area, a strange and beautiful thing presents itself… pink! Yes, it was actually slightly above average late last week and into the weekend. It carried over into this week, as well, and we have enjoyed some warmer temperatures – above average even – in the Dairy State.
It has been nice. But, as I type this, temps are heading back to about average, so we’ll be back in the 20s for daytime highs over the next few days.
In any event, for one short, glorious, time period my wish was granted.
I’m happy now.
