Global Warming?

The thermometer on my car said 58 degrees today. FIFTY-EIGHT DEGREES!

My instinct was to think it was a mistake, but then I realized I had shed my coat, turned on the A/C, and my sleeping 3-year-old in the back of the car was sweating.

I'm liking this weather! Especially considering that exactly a week ago, it was in the 20's, with a huge blizzard that brought us a foot of snow.

Now, if it can just stay this warm all week, and melt that foot of snow from my front yard, so my spring bulbs can start sprouting.

Welcome Spring!!

Unfortunately, we are destined for a few more lovely snow storms between now and the official start of Spring, but that's just Spring in Utah. I totally loved the weather today, though. Gotta enjoy it when it comes around.

Goodness, that Amber is such a recluse. I really worry about how shy and unassuming she is.

Guess what? It was an amazing 72 degrees here in Las Vegas today!

So hooray for temporary global warming!

I'm glad you guys are finally getting some of our California weather. It's going to rain here tomorrow. Curses.

It was sunny and warm all last week here in Seattle and this week they are talking snow! (It won't amount to anything but it still means it's going to be cold!)
Enjoy that warm weather!

WOOHOO!!! Loving the warm weather, but I fear getting my hopes up - you know spring in Utah!
I'm keeping my hopes high and spirits even higher that we've seen the last of the REALLY cold weather. We have training to do for crying out loud!

Yay for sunshine and warmer weather. Especially since I want to come visit soon.

We're in the 80's this week. My 7 yr old thinks it's warm enough to go swimming. Unfortunately the pool is still way too cold, but it's getting closer!

I KNOW! I'm so on the same page as you! My thermometer said it was 61 and I was totally psyched! There's something about the sun and heat that perks me up and gets me out of this SAD slump.

some studies show that a global ice age would do MUCH more damage than warming. I vote warming and drive my big old SUV accordingly.
