Congrats!  Best day to have a kid-you get the tax credit for the whole year!  LOL.   Mine are 10 (twins)-goes fast, enjoy every minute despite some long days and sleepless nights

My twins just turned 21 last week. It's been a long haul ;)

I prefer Pops!  :P  My sons range from 27-22, we both can relate how the long haul sure goes quick, days are long but years are fast, that's for sure.

January 1-15, 2020 will very likely finish with a mean temperature of 42.8°. That would rank as the 6th warmest start to January in New York City (Central Park).

The five warmer years were:

2007: 46.4°
1932: 44.0°
1950: 43.6°
1907: 43.5°
1998: 43.3°

For those who say we never had warm winters back in the day 1990 says hello for starters, that was an unforgettable winter and spring after what happened in the previous fall.

I knew we could count on Don to get us some numbers confirming that warm winters and warm periods in winters have been around for a while.

Yes. I made a comment in the discussion thread that the  pond skating in 1907 had to be horrible.

we need a massive volcanic eruption to cool the earth for the next few years maybe we will get lucky ..

I've been saying that since Pinatubo. Every time there's a decent eruption in an out of the way place I root for it to get bigger and my wife gives me s**t for it. I say I want it to snow more and she just shakes her head :)

A big volcanic eruption but not a giant meteor?  Nevermind now we're being ridiculous lol.  The wives of the posters here should probably form a support group.  Heck maybe that should be a forum on here where they could vent. I bet that would be a hilarious read.

I’m sure that’s not the only reason she shakes her head

Pops is my favorite followed by granddad and grandpa. So what do my grand children call me, they call me Poppy. I guess it’s cute and as I’m the last grandparent standing my daughters insist it’s perfect. Its okay except sometimes it makes me feel like a damn bagel. As always .....

My post was sarcasm.;)

Considering the now above water continental shelf after the Canadian Shield glacier gets built up.NYC, if it was still there would have altitude to help it out in those marginal events. Then again with liquids precipitation in such a scenario,  being so rare, we may be tracking KU rain events. Sorry folks, I’ll stop. As always ....

Well the fires in Australia are extensive enough that they are expected to have some effect, though I am unsure if that will cause any cooling.

With my chrome dome added and if it worked many more ( Anthony you’ll get used to the look ) . Don would have to start working up stats on the NYC forums albedo affect. The climate change page would never be the same. As always ....

Well listen to this here Keyboard Kowboy!  Don’t hate just because we all can’t be bald and beautiful! #AlwaysWearTheSunScreen

Went out side, at 8:44 am to check my 35 year old round brick hang up round Woolworth temp/humidity weather instrument. It read 18 degrees F and 57% humidity. After checking our local media organizations for the same I find out my temperature is 5 degrees below theirs and my humidity 7 to 10 % higher. My little postage stamp Hook/Hill  UHI postage stamp, as usual, disappears when it doesn’t count. As always ......

All these teleconnections you guys post about in my opinion is a bunch of clown maps. They’re never right! So why even give them credit so much. I just want to say thank you God for finally giving us some snow tomorrow I’m really feening!

Back from a nice run in Central Park at 65 degrees. I'll take it. Reminds me of Christmas Eve 2015.

it was 70 and 74 in Boston over the weekend, I wonder if back to back days of 70+ in Boston in January has ever happened before?

more stats..... the 2010s were the hottest decade on record and had 6 of the top 10 hottest years on record.  Also the one year that was hotter than 2019 was the super el nino year of 2016.
