Record Breaking Heat In The East

The press is full of stories about record breaking heat in the east.

Apparently time began sometime after 1932. On this date in 1932, there were 70 degree temperatures all the way from Texas to New York City.

The 1932 winter Olympics were held in Lake Placid, New York, and nearly had to be cancelled because there wasn’t any snow in mid-January.
