Looks delicious! Manhattan is going to be 5 degrees (-3 windchill) this evening. And about the same is expected for your exciting trip next week. I can't tell you how excited I am for you and Daniel. And somehow I believe we will end up seeing a picture of the three of you (including the Big "O") even though everyone is telling you that you won't even be able to get near him.

Your weather certainly would support the case for global warming if the temperatures in the Midwest and East weren't so extreme in the opposite direction. My World Resources instructor, Dr. Drake, urged us to think in terms of global climate change rather than lumping all the human-created distortions of natural cycles into the "warming" category. We might as well enjoy the perks when they come, but we must not let them distract us from working to achieve ecologically sustainable lifestyles.

Ron--Wish you were right about the picture but unfortunately you're only right about the weather.
And Mark's reminder of global warming has been on my mind too-- I agree it's a far better idea to think of "global climate change" instead of "warming".

Right after I wrote the last comment, I happened to see this piece on using the terms "global warming" or "climate change": http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kevin-grandia/is-it-global-warming-or-c_b_158368.html
