It's Called 'Global Warming,' George

The President may be in denial but anyone who was in New York City yesterday, where the temperature neared 60 degrees, could have told you: this is one very warm December. As usual for Christmas Eve, children of all ages were dreaming of snow, but this year there's not a flake in the sky or on the ground. Today's weather forecast is, according to The New York Times, for "increasing clouds, then rain," with a high temperature of 47 degrees.

Taking no cue from reality I finally (after much equivocation and procrastination) e-mailed a Christmas card to my friends showing the Flatiron Building shrouded in snow... a sort of ghost of Christmases past, and wishfull thinking on the part of this 53 year-old child.

Looking ahead, the forecast shows clear/sunny skies with temperatures increasing through the upper forties through December 31st, New Year's Eve, with a high of 55 degrees. It's called 'Global Warming,' George.
