    This is from moments ago, 18 June 2014. You know: 48 hours before solstice.
    Some of our "solar" :scared: panels.
    And this is not photoshopped.
    And this is the northern hemisphere (okay: far, far northern hemisphere).

    Actually the measurement of the Average Temperature Deviation is measured (as the name itself suggests) when averaged over the whole year and over the whole Earth. Single events like the one the OP is mentioning are not important to the measurement of the Average Temperature Deviation. And the Average Temperature Deviation in the last decades is increasing.

    Global warming is making Humboldt feel like Socal. Magical sun here, hardly any rain this year and never saw snow even!
    CA is in a lot of trouble if we have no water

    I miss the snow but that looks chilly

    We were there last year in July. The weather was a tad better than that.

    In the interest of (a little bit) fuller disclosure:

    our home is the 2nd-highest elevation permanent home in Alaska. We are sorta-kinda used to #!$* like this. On June 23, 2006, we awoke to 8"/20cm of snow. But it isn't - thank goodness!! - something we get all the time.

    When I was in St. Paul recently, I got a chuckle from a bumper sticker: MINNESOTANS FOR GLOBAL WARMING

    Given the other bumper stickers on this vehicle, it was clearly in jest.

    Minnesotans for Global Warming is actually a real organization:

    The nice thing about being in Europe is that you can occasionally dip your toes into the anti-intellectual ocean that resides in America. We have to swim in it.

    But at least in the USA there is a strong debate about Climate Change/Global Warming, because there are also many AGW deniers. In Italy for instance we live in the complete "don't care mood" about this matter.

    Should I take this at face value? We do have a number of guests this summer coming from Hong Kong, so I cannot tell if you're in jest.

    I feel for you.

    However, folks on the ‘European’ side of this rock hurling through space won’t be able to escape AGW regardless…

    And that makes me :cursing: as [fill in this space].

    If that’s all you’re worried about, you can kick back and enjoy.

    Audie does have a choice... He could be at his place in Wickenburg, AZ enjoying a nice 93F day (which is on the cool side for AZ in June...)

    I think I shall reserve for ZBB my favorite retort:

    ""Shut up!" he explained."
