This is our daily surface temperatures, expressed as bit over or under the average (for the date, I hope). We just got a hunk of very warm weather, and now we'll be back to average August. Wherever you see a good warm spot, there will be articles. Europe, Siberia, and Northern Canada. I'm trying to write my background site on these charts, but it is slow going, since it's so boring for me.
ps. I really love warmie stories. One day they will provide the perfect template on how to keep things alive when they don't exist. Like unicorns, or Toronto housing prices.
