Who's Warming?

It's freakishly warm here. This picture was taken yesterday, January 6. If this is the official National Weather Service reading, it ties the record high temperature for the entire month of January. 74 F is 23 C. The average daily high temperature this month in St. Louis is 38 F or 3 C.

Interpret this any way you please. Our friends from the far southern US into the southern hemisphere may chuckle at out bewilderment, but this is seriously weird in terms of the local climate. Some people from our area go to Florida or the Caribbean at this time of year. No need! U "R" Us and I are going to London next week to cool off.

TOMORROW: Froggie went a-courtin'

You are as warm as the Deep South! However, last week, we had our coldest temps in five years.

As a person who would love to be in a much more tropic place this time of year, I will take this weather for as long as I can get it. As they always say though, If you don't like the weather in Missouri, wait 10 minutes.

We have some rainy weather but compare to St.Louis is not that bad.

Wow! That is a mighty different! Perhaps we should have gone to St. Louis from St. Paul rather than Mazatlan, Mexico to get warm!

You lucked out, you just got heat. My hometown of Kenosha got tornadoes. Seriously, tornadoes in Wisconsin, in January.
