Weather in High Places
I keep links to weather at places I've lived, or places I've been and wish I lived, so my Yahoo page looks partly like this. I look at the weather and imagine myself wherever, with a warm breeze blowing, or rain pelting on me. Or whatever. It's a cheap vacation.
This time of year I get really attuned to how warm (or cold) it is where I am compared to the average temperature, or compared to somewhere else.
What I can't get over is that Bozeman, Montana is warmer than where I am! Bozeman's been on my list for years, it's a great town. It first got on my radar screen when I read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (yes, after I read that, I felt I had to go there). My brother-in-law thinks it's a glorified truck stop, but I've been there 2 or 3 times now, once on purpose and then once or twice on my way somewhere else, and I really really like it!
The thing is, in the year that I've been here in upstate, NY, Bozeman has always been warmer than here.
What gives??? I thought Montana was a cold place! Uh oh. Maybe Montana is a cold place, but upstate New York is colder!
