OC 2012 - Day 8 - Global Warming

On this day of vacation, it is time to start packing up and making way back home.  We noticed that this year was hotter and more humid than usual.  Most people I talked to in town agreed.  The thunderstorms used to break the humidity at least for a few hours in the late eve., but now the humidity just did not seem to break.  Sure this is good beach weather, as the beach is great when its hot.

Kyle and Sue head to SU - Salisbury University, as it is only 30 minutes way from Ocean City, and why not start looking at colleges each opportunity we get.  They say it is a very nice campus and the tour was informative.  Some modern conveniences noted, and air conditioned dorms (bonus).

This day in history "Kyle scores a 5 on his AP World History Exam"

I read that there is a trend in terms of how many record hot days there are in comparison to record cold days.   Not sure, but I think about 10 years ago I heard that the weather in NY and NJ may be more like that of Atlanta in our lifetime.  Might that mean that Maryland is now hotter than it was....

My Fig tree is full of figs and bigger and fuller than I have ever seen.  Sure it is now better established, or loving the heat.  Maybe the farmers here should think less about the cool leafy lettuces and start planting fig trees.....

P.S. The lifeguard station posted the water temps.  We never recall there being such warm water when we go to OC.  This year it was about 10 degrees warmer than what is deemed usual.  One day, it simply said delightful instead of 78 degrees.
