Today's Dupont Circle heatwave.
Today's Dupont Circle heatwave.

I know that it’s not really spring, and that this is the most melodramatic thermometer in all of DC, but the fact that I took this photo tonight after dark – when by rights a February night ought to be a damn lot colder – makes me feel like maybe it’s on its way.

Sadly, our lovely, warm temperatures are not going to last through the three-day weekend – tomorrow is going to be the high point. I’m hoping Bossman implements my team bonding recommendation of rooftop margaritas in the afternoon, so we all get a chance to bask before the mercury heads back down to a more normal range. Given how hectic this week has been, I can’t imagine it will actually come to pass, but a girl can dream, right?

    A great dream!! I know I am going to suffer BIG TIME when I return East. It has been a real tease being in AZ & TX. But every day of “less winter” is a good day! Hope you get your wish tomorrow 🙂

    It’s going to be around 55 up here in upstate NY today…THAT is a heatwave for us! Loving it. I even threw on my leather jacket and chose not to wear my snow boots (despite the icy gulch of death that is my driveway).

    If only it wasn’t so cloudy though….

    We LOVED 50 degrees yesterday, and then the sun went down and the wind picked up…and it was back to winter (25 degrees w/o windchill) today. But hey, at least the sun was out, and it DID NOT SNOW!!!! We knew yesterday was a tease, but the crash sucks. Enjoy the heck out of today!!!!!!!
