Mr McQuirter's data appears to be incorrect. 12/26/1922 had a high of only 28. Instead, we reached 51 on this day in 1936.

Although it does feel better when it gets above 50 here in the winter, since this place is a cold desert like the Gobi there is still always "that wind" ever-present which reminds us that, despite being above 50, it's STILL Minnesota - Scrooge.

If we had 3 feet of snow and it was -15 degrees someone would be claiming it was caused by global warming.

We had Global Warming when the ice age ended too...Sort of worked out for us in MN Glacier country. I am amused by folks who are so certain they know why something is happening and can "fix" it...you have much less control over your life, your surroundings and the weather than you think you do. Relax and enjoy what brief remaining time you have!
