Dew point is 8F; 13% humidity. This is desert-like! Also keeping the nights cold and frosty.

Interesting Texas has been as wet as the Northeast has been dry; the reverse of last year.

All averages out in the end.

I wonder what has to happen to average out 12 months of above normal temps

Hehe. Exactly my thinking. Nature doesn't work like that - balancing out, which is an extension of the flawed law of averages, doesn't apply. Nature and weather will do what it pleases regardless of averages; in fact the averages themselves are based on what the weather happened to be like in the past. They exert no force on weather. Of course there are longer-term quasi-stable states and phases of weather, which is called climate, and that has its own rhymes and reasons. Weather doesn't just happen at random, obviously. However even climate can change and has in the past changed rather rapidly. Whether it is catastrophic global warming, a new glacial period, an interglacial, or Snowball Earth, this fact is unquestionable.

My thinking is that if 12 months of above normal temperatures are to be balanced out there would have to be 12 months of below normal temperatures, hence the . We can only hope that it will remain well below normal on a permanent basis .

One of my favorite quotes: "Climate is what you expect, weather is what you get."

Still snowing here but lightly.

Chaos on the roads crossing the hills, severe drifting snow and gusty winds.
