I am hesitant to do this, as it is irrelevant to most lives, including mine, as I will be on long Island for the next 10 days, but we're going to see some historic weather-related sh**t in Ithaca.

we already have.  it is like late May here already.  and it gets 'better'.  on Tuesday the 21st we are currently FORECASTED FOR A HIGH OF 90 DEGREES.  ON MARCH.  21ST.  possibly still the technical wintertime... 


to put this in perspective.  the average high in Ithaca on March 21 is 42 degrees.  the previous record high was 72 degrees in 1976. we are forecasted to SHATTER the mean temp by 48 DEGREES and the record high by eighteen.

insane.

We've been hitting the lows 70s lately. Pretty weird but enjoyable. The summer could be interesting.

First off, Tuesday is the 20th. Wednesday is the 21st. Weather.com has a forecast high for Ithica for the 20th as 66 and the 21st as 69. Nowhere near 90. Lay off the Mormon crackpipe.

We've broke 80 the last two days here in Chicago. The average high would be 47, and the old records were in the 70's.

The bad news is that most buildings here aren't ready to turn on AC. The high school auditorium I was in this evening was sweltering.

It's regularly been in the high 70s here in Atlanta and sometimes in the low 80s. This is the warmest winter that I can remember, and I've regularly had to use my AC. If this keeps up summer is going to be miserable and my electric bill will be through the roof.

Temps are very "hot" too here at the moment. Today it was about 70F (20-21C) and for the weekend it could reach 75F (23-24C).

Usually it has only 10-15C in March. The snow is melting pretty fast and we had a ton of snow.

It's been cold and wet for the last week; we got some hail today for a couple minutes, which was very exciting for my brother.

It's not just a problem in the public sector. My wife works in a private office building that would have been costly to switch from heating to cooling and back again when the normal temps return, so they baked in their cubicles this week.

Not trying to be difficult, but what's the problem with climate control? We don't seem to have this problem where I live. When it's cold, there's heat. When it's hot, there's A/C. Consistently. It's expected just as much as electric lights and running water. Any private office building that didn't make sure it maintained such basic utilities would soon find itself without tenants.

You may be in an area where heat pumps are common for commercial buildings, and they are relatively easy to reverse. In my area they are rare and heating and cooling is usually done with separate boilers and chillers. If they use a common water reservoir there is considerable time and expense to shift the temperature of the circulating water from one side of room temperature to the other.

was my sense of humor bro.  I can see how writing 200 papers on "The Functionaility of 1.8v close circuitry in a sub atomic mirrored MUON (2005)" would sap yours, though not saying this is necessarily the case.

In other news we hit 80 for the fifth straight day and the fifth straight record. Chicago has never hit 80 this early and has never had two days in a row over eighty earlier than April.

Your buildings are built in a way that makes it difficult to switch between heat and AC? I know that it's not usually so warm this early, but anywhere in the nation's interior, there's always a transition time when you'd need to switch back and forth a few times each fall/spring. You guys suffer with uncomfortable interiors twice a year due to cheap/obsolete/whatever construction? That's really lame.

Given the usual cold temps here in the winter, a commercial-sized system that's easy to switch would usually be more expensive up here. This is an unprecedented event. Generally the building techs schedule the switchover on some weekend months in advance. In the aforementioned office, they did switch by Friday given that the forecast called for continued record warmth through the beginning of next week.

wicked hot here as well.  Over 80 for three straight days.  I'm lovin' it.  I suppose that the average is in the 40s.  Who knows?  All I know is that I cannot remember any year, in the five years that we have lived here, that we could do so much outside during spring break.  There's one little pile of snow remaining in one parking lot, about a mile from my house.  A month ago it was 20 feet tall.  Now it's just a little bump of black ice trickling away, making a daily stream from itself to the nearest drain.

We actually planted tomatoes, jalapeos, Thai chiles, and cucumbers today, even though the package says that we should plant in "Late May/Early June" in our area.  We have a little 8x8 foot plot where we have planted stuff every summer.  These may get frosted.  There's a good chance that they well, in fact, but we started our garden anyway.  Just for fun.  I even let the boy get his little watertoys out today, and get all wet.  Can you imagine that?  A week of winter left, technically, and we're out planting fruit and playing with they water hose.
