It was 64 degrees when I left the house just before 5 AM today. The temperature in the D.C. area is going up to the mid-70s today. There is rain and thunder in the forecast. Nevertheless, it will be 12 degrees warmer here today than in Santa Monica, California, and exactly twice as warm (i.e. 37 degrees warmer) than it will be where strausmouse and rmstraus live.
It is February, right?
