P.S. Still chill

I guess it really was unrealistic of me to think that last year’s heat-end date could be replicated every year– without checking to see if last March was unusually warm… which it was.  I’ve expanded the last moving-average-of-daily-averages graph from the last post a bit, both forwards and back, to show the whole month of March.  Overall, last March was 6.9º warmer than this March!

Also I added in a green line for the historical average daily average. Overall, this March has been only 0.3º colder than usual.  But, as you can see, the past week and a half it’s been consistently quite a bit chillier.

Which explains why we managed to have a #&#%ing blizzard yesterday.  We were down to about 10% snow cover, but now we’re back to 100%!  I had hopes it would all melt today, but I don’t think today’s predicted high temp of 37º (11º below average!) is going to do the job.  By the time this snow is gone, I think the fires will be too.  We’ve had only one in the past week or so.

    This snow shouldn’t be stopping you from biking with us, though! C’mon, man!
