Oops — make that global cooling. A headline from today’s Wichita Eagle: “Lack of Extreme Heat a Real Rarity.”
As August arrives, Wichita has recorded zero days this year of temperatures reaching 100 or more.
None. Zip. Nada.
Wichita hasn’t made it this far into a summer without reaching 100 since 1928. Herbert Hoover was president and the technological innovation sweeping the country was something called radio.
Furthermore, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center forecasts continued cooler-than-normal temps for Wichita for the rest of the month. So there is a good chance that we will make it through the entire summer without ever seeing a 100-degree day.
Hmmm. Has Al Gore been in Kansas recently?
