It’s November 17th and it was 82 °F today. This record high blows away the previous record, which was 80 °F and was only set a few years earlier, in 2012. According to my records, the record high before that was set way back in 1958 and was only 78 °F. It’s a good thing that all of this global warming falderal is nothing more than some hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. I took the above photo of Steinberg Rink last week. It was all set to open for another season, which it did this last weekend. I suspect that now the ice is just a wee bit damp, but it sure is comforting not having to believe in climate change.
