Eric Holthaus: There’s never been a 100 degree F+ World Series game. That’s because they’re played in October and November. Seasons aren’t what they used to be.
Socks and crocs. I witnessed that combination on someone’s feet walking from the parking garage to the office. What’s worse? The socks and crocs together? Or the fact that the guy wore this ensemble to work?
It is unseasonably warm here in California this week. It was 95 degrees driving in this morning at 8:00 and it should reach 100 some time today. The weatherman is predicting that tonight will be the warmest opening night to a World Series game ever. It could be a balmy 95 degrees when the game starts about 5:00 local time.
It’s not the fall season we’ve come to expect here in Southern California. A coworker mentioned to me that, when she walked across the street to Subway for lunch, it felt like she was in Florida. Muggy, hot, yucky.
Today, a friend posted a picture from her phone with the temperature at her home. At 3:00 p.m. local time, it was 106 degrees in Laguna Niguel, with a wind chill factor of 100. Wind chill? Excuse me?
What can we expect in the future? Oven mitts for gloves? Sandals on Christmas morning instead of flannel pajamas? I’m stumped.
