While out sledding with the kids on Sunday (before the Browns lost their final game versus the Steelers) I snapped this picture showing the freshly fallen snow.
Have a Happy, Safe and Joyous 2013!

"...We succumb to the cognitive bias called the "recency effect". That is, we the tendency to weigh recent events (warmer temps in December) more important than earlier or past events because they are more fresh in our minds."Are these 50 and 60 degree high temperatures for early December all that unusual? I dug through ALL of the high temperature records for early December since 1912 and plotted what I found in 20 year increments. (Each year would have been a mess!) The first chart is the number of days with highs in the 50s and 60s for the FIRST week of December. The second chart is the number of days with highs in the 50s and 60s for the SECOND week of December.
