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.
Well, okay, call it weather of the YESTERday, since I didn't get around to making a blogtype post. This weather is still new enough to me that I can get impressed by a high in the 80s followed by a low in the 30s within two days.
