Good. Let it keep up all summer and destroy the supposedly huge hurricane season.

I should have suspected a sunny-yellow-shaded poster would beat me here to say that.

Amen to that. It's only 56 degrees here right now too. I'll be tickled pink if we dodge a major fire season two years in a row from all this late June rain.

Is it good?  Preventing Earth from cooling herself off?  It's early in the season anyway.  I'm sure big storms are coming.

If this happens every year, how come the Sahara is still full of dust and sand?

Maybe there's some sort of higher power giving us a hint that we should wear fabric coverings over our breathing holes.

i used to simply cringe when i saw temps like that.

thanks to anthropogenic global warming, i get to experience something very similar now - you guys are seriously farked! it's death outside right now.

plus i get to keep enjoying the same -60F wind chill six months later but that's neither here nor there.

climate change has really brought out the empath in me.

Good. Jim Cantore and his ilk or horrible people and detrimental to news and resources of those who have been hit by a hurricane.
