This New Year's Day weather is outrageous...in a great way. The temperature just before 3:30 pm is a ridiculous 64 degrees, NINE degrees above average. Yes, its very much fun and highly enjoyable but the bottom line is that it's not supposed to be this way. (The record for this date is 70 degrees set in 1981.)
We need cold, rain, snow and lots of it. Sure, the Chamber of Commerce loves this kind of weather but this drought just has to end. Pity the poor land, plants and critters. With each day that ticks off the calendar there are that many fewer days left to get the precipitation we need. THINK SNOW!
