I have 2 weather gauges on my desktop; one for Alexandria, VA, where I live, and one for Clear Lake, IA, where I (possibly) want to live. For the last couple weeks, the Clear Lake gauge says it’s been in the 80’s, while we’ve been in the 50’s and 60’s. This might not sound all that crazy, except that Clear Lake is in Northern Iowa (almost Minnesota) and I’m in the mid-Atlantic (almost The South).
And now, this morning, I log on to see that it’s 54 degrees at 9 a.m. here, and 61 degrees there… at 8 a.m! I say again, Clear Lake is in NORTHERN Iowa. How can it be consistently warmer there than here? Especially this time of year?
I began to suspect the temperature gauges (courtesy of Windows gizmos) is broken. This morning just confirmed it. So I log onto AccuWeather. And what do I find?
It’s warmer in Northern Iowa earlier in the morning than it is here in the mid-Atlantic!
