To a Seattleite in springtime, this is a very happy word*:
It is increasingly apparent that this spring will not be a repeat of the damp, cold abomination of Spring 2011. Today [that is, yesterday] Seattle hit 68F and yesterday [Sunday] 70F....well above the normal high of 57F. In 2011, the first day to hit 70F was MAY 20th.
He also goes on to say that the warmest March on record—with the records going back to
1985 1895—that the rest of the country experienced is no reason to panic about climate change. (Panic in general, maybe, just not about this.)
Thanks, Cliff Mass!
*And yes, it's from yesterday, so I lose the internet. But: WARMTH!!!
