The British have kept records of the temperature since 1772, pre-Revolutionary War. A new record of 81.5º F was set recently. They flocked to the beach to enjoy the sun and warmth briefly because a cool spell was returning all too quickly.
Imagine being disappointed once again after waiting since the Revolutionary War for the weather to stay in the low 80s for a few days. Ah, the Brits like global warming, even if it lasted a few hours.
The Al[mighty] Goracle can let it break into the 70s here any day now. That would be an enjoyable improvement.
