January 6: 71 Degrees!!

The amazing stretch of weather we've been having here in New York continues, as it is currently 71 degrees outside, by far a new record for this date. It's an incredible 30 degrees above normal right now. It reached 58 degrees on my birthday, and I can't remember the last time it was that warm on January 4. Most of my birthday memories include either bone-chilling cold or snow. Outside right now, it feels more like June 6 than January 6.

We still haven't seen the snowflake in New York this season, and this is now the latest ever into the winter that has ever happened. The old record was January 4, in 1878. The temperatures are supposed to come down about 20 degrees tomorrow (but it will still be above normal), and into later next week it feel more like a "normal" January.

But I'll take every "abnormal" January day like this I can get. You know the lousy weather is coming, as it's just a matter of time.

And the hell with Al Gore. "Global warming" doesn't seem so bad to me.
