Global warming strikes again

It’s a beautiful spring day here in central Pennsylvania.

But wait, today is January 8.

The average high temperature on January 7 is 33F/0C, and the record high is 62F/16C, set in 1930. Yesterday was 66F/19C.

Today’s average high is the same, and the record is 64F/17C, set in 1937. It’s already 61F/16C out, and predicted to again be 66F/19C. [Update: final high for Jan. 8: 68F/20C. New record.]

What does this have to do with knitting? If January is balmy, when do I wear wool???

    On the plus side, the warm weather allowed me to get the greenhouse done that I had started over Thanksgiving. Said greenhouse is now giving the little seedlings a headstart on the Michigan growing season.
    Greenhouse begats greenhouse.
