As I write this this, I noticed the clock on my desk is telling me it is 5:02am EDT. Now 5:03am. I'll leave the house on my commute for work at about 6:00am. By that time the temperature outside will have dropped another degree or so. Right now, it's hovering around 52º F and I am debating in my head if I should wear long thermal underwear. The trip is an hour long and I really don't want to be an ice cube until mid morning.
I had a friend remind me recently that, back when we were kids growing up, back before global warming was a problem, our summers used to be really, really hot. Nowadays, August in Ohio feels more like August in northern Ontario.
I'll nix the long johns, but chaps are a definite must this morning.
