(Toledo, OH) The official high temperature for January 7 in Toledo is 61 degrees Fahrenheit, which was set in 1907. At the moment, my external temperature gauge (yes, I am a weather geek) reads 65.3 degrees.
Somewhat oblivious to the weather forecast, I thought I was developing a fever when I was working on an op-ed article for a local paper today, and beads of sweat appeared on my forehead. After determining that the warm air and high humidity were to blame for my overheating, I decided to open some windows and let in the fresh air.
My dogs also enjoyed the warm weather, and they have been outside much of the day. I share their enthusiasm for stretching the legs and sucking in some warmer air after a few weeks on temperatures between 10 and 40 degrees.
