January heat wave

It’s going to be a scorcher today in NYC, by early-January terms. The estimated highs in Central Park are ranging from 65 to 70 degrees, which means a high likelihood of breaking the daily record (65 degrees, set in 1998), and close to the January record (72 degrees, set on January 7, 2007).

In a related topic, I find it amazing how quickly the city adapts to warm weather. Yesterday, my local fruit stand reappeared after a month of absence, and the Rocking Horse Cafe had not only setup their outdoor seating, it was full!
