  12. I'm at 85 imby already...it should reach 90 later here...I had a quick onshore flow that brought some fog with it...it came and went fast...I'm only a few blocks from the water...
  13. sorry to say I'm old enough to remember 66...I was seventeen and you know how the song goes...I wonder how hot it was near LGA before it was built in 1936...or Newark for that matter...
