Well, after the deep freeze last week, mother nature took a detour--a 30+ degree detour. Last week the temperatures barely got out of the teens Yesterday, January 29 the thermometer in my garage nearly popped it's top as temperature soared to 75 degrees!
I remember reading once that there is a phenomenon called the "January thaw", which acts as a sort of reprieve from cold weather in order to give everyone time to gear up for the next cold snap. Well, I don't know about the "thaw" but in a few days Mr. groundhog Phil will make his prediction.
Personally I think that the mother we call nature is sleeping on the job. Maybe she needs new glasses. Maybe she needs a 2013 calendar. Whatever the case may be, 75 degrees in January (except in Florida) shouldn't occur.
75 degrees again today. I toss my coat in the back of the closet. All those warm weather lovers (and I am beginning to think they are in the majority) can't stop jumping up and down as they unpack their swim suits. All I can say is hold your horses....I think mother is waking up and dialing down the temps. Tomorrow is going to be in the 30's. And I hear she has been in conference with Phil.
