I can’t believe how cold this winter has been for us. We’ve been here for a little more than 6 years now and we’ve never seen a winter like this. For us, cold is 32 degrees Farenheit. Yeah yeah, if you’re from Chicago or Milwaukee like we were then I know it’s not really cold but that’s what cold is to this area. I really don’t remember it dropping below freezing for more than a night or two and if it did it was just by a degree or so. However, this year it’s gotten into the 20s for multiple nights now. Looking at the records it seems like we’ve set record lows in some cases by as much as 8 degrees over the last 5 days or so. The rest of the week is only warming up to the lower 30s for our lows so it’s still going to be really cold compared to normal.
Our neighborhood has a weather reporting station which also has historical data available so I was able to go back and look at how cold it got each night. It’s pretty slick actually. I was able to check remotely while we were on vacation to see how cold it got. Not that Anaheim was that much warmer.
I guess global warming doesn’t make it warmer everywhere.
