Out of the Blue

MrsBlue and I were discussing how much things have changed in our area in the 13-or-so years we've lived here, as we used to have a few days a year that required air conditioning, and this year we'll be lucky if we even have a few that do not (so far we've counted one). I dug up a page to do historical comparisons, and I'll need to go back for a less superficial examination, but one quick comparison bore out my theory. The "average mean" temperature this month is nine degrees hotter than out first July here, and the "minimum mean" is eight degrees hotter. I'll go back at some point to try and determine how much this seems like an actual trend than just a pair of data points (since it seems exaggerated), but it certainly supports our seat-of-the-pants (or better, sweat-of-the-armpits) experience.
