2017 could end up being Miami’s hottest on record
By Brett Clarkson Staff writer
"It was a steamy year in South Florida — so toasty that 2017 could end up being the hottest on record in Miami, and pretty close to that in Broward and Palm Beach counties."


So few degrees cooler would be nice.

I finally took the Graduate Record Exam. I left Show Low at 9:30, got there at 12:30, and my fingers were too cold to type as furiously as I wanted for the "Write as many words as you can for thirty minutes" section.

So far, I scored higher than my friend, but he did not study, and he scored 98th percentile on the essay section.

I never looked up snow in Flagstaff, but the news just showed their ski resort. They are making their own snow. It was curious to see bare trees and greenery in the background.

Another day out riding the horse in mid-50s and sunny, when I should be skiing instead. Poor guy has his winter coat (we think he has some woolly mammoth in his family tree), so he gets all sweaty.

In my best Johnny Carson imitation voice:

Q: How COLD was it?

A: So COLD the doorknob frosted over!

About 7°F here and I'm sweaty from shoveling the driveway. Still snowing, so I'll probably have to do it again tomorrow.

We've had a few nights in the negative teens (°F) here. In contrast with previous years, I'm trying to ride my bike all throughout the winter, so that has meant my last couple rides of 2017 were in the negative single digits.
