    Getting ready to go fishing tomorrow here for the MN walleye opener. According to official records this will be the first time in 11 years there was still ice on lakes on the opening of fishing (second weekend in May).

    Another anecdotal, it's freezing, not literally, here in Chicago area.

    Lows 42, High 62 next 5 days and nights.

    Could you send some of the cooling THIS WAY? 95 yesterday and the same today. I'm starting to think Global Warming is happening specifically HERE.

    Wish I could. It just made it to 61 today and now falling. I've got a door open, but wearing my fuzzy slippers, jeans, and long sleeve sweater. I just have to let some air in!

    I have come to the conclusion as of today that 48 is probably a most excellent age to stop running 3 miles when it's 95 degrees out. Needs to cool down to at least 90 or so.:cool:

    No shit. I've been making fun of that for 3 days. Cool front = 88 instead of 95. Thanks, The Weather Channel.:rolleyes:

    GunnyL,
    Move out to Washington State--Mother's Day--walked the dogs this morning: Temp' was 40 with a twenty knot wind so it felt like somewhere near thirty. Had the second most snowy winter on record this year.

    Grew up in South Florida and well remember that 90 degree stuff. You can keep it, along with all the bugs.

    I lived in Miami most of the 70s, so I know what you mean, but I'm just the opposite. You can keep that cold. Spent many a hot summer day diving off the pipes into the canals or at the beach or Elliot Key.

    Running sucked there too.:lol:

    Fishing was good Saturday, though cold and overcast and rainy which by mid-afternoon had turned to snow, yes SNOW on May 10th.
