  1. Of course, these are headlines about exceptional weather events.

  2. In the same vein, here where I live in Utah county, Utah all the peaks much over 9,500 feet still have snow and today is the 4th of July. In all the years I have lived here, not even Mount Nebo (10,700 feet) has still had any snow on its peak at all on the 4th of July. They have always been snow free by now! Now that’s some serious global warming going on….(Sarc)
