    What happened to July, August and September?



    52 F this morning?! I had to wear tights, jacket, arm warmers and long finger gloves. Where did Denver's summer go?

    It's been odd in New England as well. We had rain something like 29 out of 36 days in June and early July, all day, every day. Now that the torrential rains have stopped we're still well below our annual average temeratures for this time of year. Our high for the year hasn't even topped 90 and until the past week, it's still been fairly cool at night.

    It's July 30th in my timezone. August and September have yet to be. It's a bit premature to be writing them off. Don't borrow trouble...
    You have the right to your own opinion. You don't have the right to your own facts.

    52?! I'll take some of that. That's perfect riding temps in my book! July, August and September can all go to 'ell as far as I'm concerned. October and early November is the best weather of the year, around here anyway.

    Here in the South, when it's 90+F and 90+% humidity, there is not much you can do to get cool. When the temperature drops all you have to do is put on a light windbreaker, some full fingered gloves, and little skull cap. Then you're just peachy. I'll take 52 degrees any day.
    Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth.

    We've had an extra hot summer in the southwest, too. Here in southern NM we have been hotter and more humid than we have seen in years. We routinely go 24 hours without the temps going under 80 with humidity running 40% - 50% (not much, I know, but a lot for us). Weird because 4 hours north where my parents live (still in NM) they are having one of the coldest summers on record. Weather is weird.
    I like fat tires and I cannot lie...

    You can have our triple digits. 52 degrees is heaven.

    Pssst, it's called "climate change" because the effects are not universal. Some places are warmer, some colder, some wetter, some drier.

    Summer was last Thursday and Friday. I think it only rained a little bit one of those days, and the sun was out for most of the day on the other one.

    Global warming does not mean that it gets warmer everywhere. It means that more energy has been added to a chaotic system, which results in disruption and could easily result in some areas being much hotter and some being much colder. When it says "average temps will increase 2 degrees this decade, it could easily be that some areas increase 10 degrees while others decrease 20, and storm frequency or intensity increases.

    I had to sport the rain gear this am and it's 54F outside right now. Better than 105 or 20. I don't miss commuting in the wet PNW.

    I'm with you. I got freaking soaked coming into work. I left the house, it was cold and dry. Got into work, cold and wet.

    Not that I went out in the clothes you did. I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt

    Luckily, I put on my fenders last night, so I'm good.

    We just skipped over them and went straight to October. The high today seems to be around 54. I don't mind the cold but, jeez, it'd be nice to have a little heat (and a whole lot less rain) in the summer.

    +1. Al Gore's movie suggests that global warming could even trigger an ice age...or maybe it's preventing one. Either way, things are changing!

    It is the new ice age that I was taught all about in the late 70s. Now they are teaching that it is getting warmer or something. In 10 years they'll teach that the sky is turning purple or some other silliness.
    Not too much to say here
