Frog in a pot

Matthew Yglasias in Washington DC notices that global warming appears to have become, well, noticable.
It's, like, really warm out today and has been consistently this week. Which, on the whole, is a good thing. One can't help but wonder, however, when crazy things happen like flowers blossoming on trees. In January. Presumably, this is bad for the trees. I mean, it has to be, right? Plus, it's actually a little unnerving—unnatural—and it makes me fear what will happen in August. 130 degrees? Will giant half-melted bits of the polar ice cap come sliding down from Canada and crush my house?

I have concerns.

He's not the only one.

Washingtonians don't often take time to notice the weather, so it has to be really weird to creep us out. Saturday was bizarre. Everyone put on shorts and flip flops but it felt like a science fiction movie. Many Washington bloggers wrote about Saturday - New York bloggers did, too.
