        My pleasure – but remember when the reports are colder then it is just weather, when warmer it is climate… I learned that from CNN

    Also check the weather in Minnesota and Wisconsin. But never forget the Big Harbinger of Global Cooling – a killing frost on the Great Plains in June.

    I am keeping and eye out for the killing frost in June. I have a Goggle Alert for the phase “killing frost”

    17 Fahrenheit this AM with 4″ of snow on the ground in Northern Colorado Springs. Sick of winter just want to see leavez on trees.

    The purple martins are back and have no insects to eat.
