Turns out we set a new record today. Minneapolis' high temperature of 97, (which did get captured in my avatar over there), recorded at 17:06, SMASHES the previous record of 89, set in 1977 and tied in 1978.
Today's LOW was 59, recorded at 07:55. I know you were curious.

It was 80, overcast & sprinkling outside when I let the dogs out [[ Insert "woof"x 4 here ]] at noon. Now it's up to 87. Note that this is most certainly the last day for the next 6 months that I'll be able to gloat.
From this week's Observer: "Michael Cole was hilarious when he mentioned that Jamal and Rosey grew up in the hood in Sunnyvale, CA (very near where I live, which is just as funny as the mean streets of Greenwich, CT)."
