Jan 102012

42 degrees.

That’s fahrenheit, folks.

In Wisconsin.  Northern Wisconsin.  In January.  The 10th of January to be exact.

Now if this was a freak occurrence, I would be hopping up and down like a little girl who had just received the bestest Barbie ever.

But it’s not and I’m not.  What it is , is something that has been happening for the past 5 years or so.  We get into January or February (which are supposed to be the coldest months of the year in the Northwoods), and we get this warm streak of 40’s, sometimes 50 degree, temperatures.

Sure, sure, it’s great to be able to go outside and not freeze your unmentionables off.  I even grilled on the deck for the past 2 nights!  Great?  Yes.  Normal?  No.

And snow?  Don’t even get me started on that.

OK, you got me started.

We have only received maybe 15 inches of snow so far this season.  Again, normal would have been 2 or 3 feet of the white stuff.  Up here, snow is good.  Not just good, necessary.  (If you live anywhere in the upper Midwest, you know why.  I’ll explain it to those that don’t at another time.  I’ll make it fun.  I promise.)

The whole point of this blather?

Yeah, what he said.
