2012 Sets Record For Northeast's Hottest Year Ever

No surprise for Northeast residents sweating out the summer after a winter barely touching their snow shovels: This is the hottest year on record in the region so far.

The Northeast Regional Climate Center at Cornell University reported Tuesday that the average temperature in the 12-state region was 49.9 degrees from January through July. That's the warmest seven-month period since 1895, the year systematic record keeping began.

While it makes for sweaty nights, not everybody's complaining.

I guess this will be Delmarva Powers excuse for my higher than high electric bill yesterday.

No such thing as global warming though, right?

I was just going to comment that the liberals will be screaming global warming again, but I can see that 4:25 has already proven my point.
