My son was looking at old temperature records and discovered that on August 11th 1944, Burlington, Vermont experienced its highest recorded temperature of 101F. All through the 1940’s there were exceptionally hot periods. In contrast, the 1960’s produced some of the coldest spells.
Meanwhile in the UK I am reliably informed it is seasonably cold and snowing. Here in middle California, prayers are being answered and rain is falling on a chilly day. According to the GW people, the sea is rising along the coast of Vietnam, yet over in the UK’s Starcross, for centuries mere inches above the Exe Estuary at high tide, the sea has not risen. Make of all this what you will!
