If 2010 has a theme, it would seem to be record-breaking. First, there was Snowmageddon / Snowpocalypse / snOMG, which gave us more of the white stuff in one winter than we’d seen in a century. Then, in April, unseasonably warm temperatures got a few new dates marked down in the books. And just to make sure one season doesn’t go by without offering a notable weather phenomenon, we’re on the verge (literally, within one degree) of breaking DC’s summer heat record, too. Loooovely.
I know I am not the first to say this, and I will not be the last: This extreme, record-breaking weather is for the birds. I was out of town last week, and thoroughly enjoyed the breezy, sunny, mid-70s weather in Upstate New York. It’s my understanding it was similar here in DC, if perhaps slightly warmer. Why can’t we have more of that? I mean, if weather records must be broken, can’t we shatter the tally for the most sequential days of awesome perfection?
Just for a change of pace, y’know?
