Yes, last night was the first in a while where we actually slept with no AC and windows open!

Slept with the fans on, too.

My bedroom was 64°F out when I woke up. Walked around in the morning with a jacket on. Not used to the cold.

Oh, looks like it was colder overnight here (58°F) than there (66°F). Identical temperatures now in the afternoon. Typical.

You'd get the same horribly skewed increase if you choose warmest months:
The median year in the data survey you linked to was 1941, and in that period the warmest months, necessarily in the Summer, occurred in the recent half 11 of the 12 times indicating that New York City is experiencing MUCH hotter Summers as time goes on.

Not sure what point you were making.

It has been the rare day this summer that my AC has been off for 24 hours. I think the exact number hovers around 1 since the beginning of June. Even today started off in the upper 60's but the humidity was 80% at 5 AM. (Insomnia since I discontinued a beta blocker.) And when it gets to be the expected 83 it will feel mighty sticky.

I thank god my coop has one big meter and my maintenance remains constant...no Con-Ed bill. I also thank God there are people here who still say "Oh I HATE air conditioners." Alas, one of them is under me so I have a warm/hot floor.

A pleasant summer, isn't it? The best I can remember of NYC summer.

My heart goes to the poor Chinese on the other side of the ocean who have been roasted for nearly a month...politicians are not anything to brag about here, but they are miles ahead of the morons overseas.
