  1. I spent some time visualizing long term temp trends last year. The data set was through last December, I believe. So the 2020s data is only 20,21 and 22. But the trends are stark.

    This all show the distribution of high and low temps (Aug to Nov) and freezing temps in cold season.

    some flashes of lighting not to loud thunder meh storm for upper manhattan

    That was an absolute banger on the UWS (100s). Everything: strobe light lighting, strike near us (judging by sound), whistling wind. Sheets of rain.

  3. Central Park is masterpiece of urban planning. Olmstead is a hero to me. If you go there on a summer day "elitist" is the last thing that will come to mind. It still meets the aim he had in creating urban parks - to create egalitarian spaces open to everyone. Go up to Great Hill on a summer day when you'll see big families having BBQ's and grad students wine picnics on the lawn and families having birthday parties.

    The CPK reporting station is as far from pavement as you can get in Manhattan and probably as representative of the median conditions across the 5 boroughs as you can get.

    And in the winter. :sled:
