To give you an idea of how warm it's been, I actually had to turn on the air conditioning in our house so we could sleep last night. Even considering that my wife requires a ceiling fan even in the dead of winter, that's still an amazing thing to be able to say this time of year.

Oh, well. Wearing flip flops in January was nice while it lasted.
