Attack of the Sleeping Storm
I'm not sure if it was residual stress from all the driving I did over the weekend, shaking off some low level cold I may have picked up, or the various cryslals I picked up in Cassadaga zapping my energy, but whatever it was, I slept pretty much the entire day.
When I did wake up around 10:00 pm (yes, you read that right, 2200 hours) Spring said that it might have been the storm that passed through the area today. “Did you fall back asleep around 4 or 5 o'clock?” she asked.
“Yes.” Okay, so I didn't sleep the entire day. I was up for maybe two or three hours though.
“Must have been the storm,” she said. “At that time at Negiyo, everybody was struggling to stay awake.”
How odd …
Is it global warming, or just urban heat islands?
Some quick links before I go back to sleep.
It seems that Anthony Watts is questioning the collection of tempurature data and that the data is showing urban heat islands and not necessarily global warming.
I got the link from Flutterby, which has some further commentary and links about this phenomenon (do do de do do) that's worth reading up on as well.
