But think again. Isn't it significant when, in a matter of two or three days, the temperature changes from 20 degrees to 60? If it isn't, than I don't know what is.
Sunday: there was a half an inch of ice covering everything--including the snow.
Monday: The ice all melted and it rained.
Tuesday: it rained!
I got up at 7 to take out the trash--it had been blowing hard all night. I stumbled up to the garage, opened the door and felt what seemed like a hot breath on my face! It was one of the most exhilarating thing to feel after getting so used to the freezing weather. The 35 mph wind was warmer than the garage! The rest of the day, while on campus, I could face into the gale without any kind of the chill that so often accompanies the winter wind. Today's high temp in Bellingham is listed at 63 degrees!
Tonight it started raining again, which is fine. I'm plenty used to that part.
