Last week, it was very hot in New York City-high 90s each day but with humidity, the heat index was well into the 100s. It was really miserable. Today, though it is much cooler in the upper 60s. I heard that in Malone, NY, it was 34 degrees this am. Wow!
All last week, we complained of the heat and today I even heard someone say they were chilly. Honestly, I was very hot and uncomfortable last week, but today I am just right.
I am struck by the fact that we can have such huge differences in temperture in such a short amount of time and in the same state.
When I was a child growing up, I went to the Catskills all summer long and we do not have air conditioning in our bungalow. I was in that same Catskills resort this weekend and was grateful for the air-conditioning and am unsure if I would have survived staying there without it.
However, I don't remember it being as hot when I was a child. But people are telling me it wasn't-the temperature nowadays are just extreme.
This is making me realize that something is happening within our atmosphere-the talk about climate change and global warming is true. These are topics I have heard about but haven't paid attention to; however the recent weather is causing me to think I better!!
