It has been really cold in MD for the first few weeks of 2009. Well below normal temps. I’m pretty used to cold weather from my days at Penn State, but it’s been a while here — with every winter since 2002 being warmer than normal. In December 2006, the leaves still haddn’t fallen from the trees in my yard, which was just plain weird.
I guess I’ve gotten a little soft on the cold.
At any rate, the next two days are projected to have highs in the 40s and I’m, frankly, giddy about that.
