Weather Forecast



Really, it is much simpler this way. Instead of two or more months of playing hot-or-cold every time we step outside, we can just embrace that fact that winter is here until summer time - none of the hassle of going coatless today because it's almost an acceptable temperature, before bundling up tomorrow to avoid hypothermia. Just wear your parka until it's time for flip-flops. It is as simple as that.
