I checked the weather before leaving work today and it was 51 degrees! Is it really January? There are still traces of snow along the side of the bike trail, but I can’t believe it will last much longer with temperatures like this; so much for winter. Perhaps it’s just my memory playing tricks on me, but winters seemed a lot worse when I was growing up. Of course, I didn’t grow up in Rhode Island, but from talking to people who did, winters have become more mild. Perhaps those that don’t believe we are starting to see the affects of global warming should spend some time outside this winter.
