Dog Days of Summer
This graphic from the Columbus Dispatch shows just how much the weather has sucked this summer in comparison to last year. Summer 2009 yielded only five days ninety degrees or above, with none coming in the month of July. That’s fourteen days less than last year. The average temperature in July was 5.5 degrees cooler. June started promising with the same number of days in the 80s as last year and only a 0.8 average degree cooler. But by the end of the summer we have been deprived of thirteen less eighty degree days. And these values were recorded in Ohio. I’m sure it was even worse here in the state up north. What happened to global warming?
