70 In January? In Maryland??

Um. Really? I believe it's actually warmer here today than it is in Phoenix. Good thing I got the snow plow all set up last month! Geez!

We took advantage of the nice weather to head out and about this morning. I love the folks that dress up and stand at busy intersections to attract business! Today we spotted the Chick-fil-A Cow:

I noticed that my friends the Alpacas seemd to be enjoying a lazy day in the sun as well:

Even ol' Spike took to the outdoors and enjoyed a nice little romp in the grass:


Spike, you look pretty darn good for a 16 year old dog! Good boy!

And of course, one can't go outside without the Master of the Estate....

HEY MAX!

YOU SMELL!
Bwuahahahaha! I love his little puppy dog scowl.

So. Global warming? Fluke? Sign of things to come? What's your theory on temps 30 degrees above normal in January? I also heard on the news that this is the first time since the 1880's that New York has not had snow this late into the winter season.

Hi Jeff
It was 60 degrees and raining in NH yesterday - but I remember my first winter in NH was the same - no snow until mid January in 1978. But there's no question some of the weather is affected by man made pollution.
I'm just thrilled it isn't 20 below up here!

LOL you're so funny, Jeff.

I do believe there is such a thing as global warming but I don't think this warm weather is part of that. Warm winters, cool summers, crazy storms, it's all just a part of weather cycles, I think.

We finally got a few flurries today in NY - hopefully this is a sign that winter is finally here.

I've had your blog open for three days now, so I figured it's about time I left a comment.

What I want to know is this: Am I the only one who noticed that those poor alpacas are sitting in DIRT, while on your side of the fence there appears to be plenty of lush green grass? I say you need to either cut through the fence and let them in, or get yourself a flock of sheep! Or some free ranging chickens. . . : )
