Jamaica Jamaican in China

56 Degrees in the Shade

No, it’s not Jamaica. The average temperature there is 85 F degrees.  It’s not Saipan. The average temperature there is 87 F degrees. And, it’s not Hainan, China or Laos, where tropical climates rule. No, this is New York City in February of 2012!

Yesterday was in the high forties, so I headed to the park to grab some sun and watch the South American guys playing football.

56 degrees in new york

Today is 56 degrees so far (with a high of 59 in the forecast!)! Today, I’m house-sitting for a friend in Long Island, and he’s got a southern exposure in his back yard! You have absolutely no idea how happy I am!

Walt in New York

I hope I can break a sweat!

  • You’re right George, we have a lot of circuses going on to distract us and I do not know who half these people are unless they do something outrageous but I do know of Beyonce because she is from Houston and is very talented, beautiful and seems to have a reputation as a lady which is difficult to find these days–
    I love the picture of Sophia and Jayne–well Sophia is still gorgeous and still with us and poor Jayne came to a very bad end as I recall. See I am easily distracted by the circus as well!!!
