A Late First Snowfall

Some flakes are falling outside my window in Philadelphia. It is the first snow I have seen here this year, but it isn't sticking. My kids are hoping for some real snow soon.

Today NOAA reported that 2006 was the warmest year on record in the U.S. Have you noticed that people are talking about global warming a lot this winter?

I would have thought that the sweltering days of summer would have inspired more thoughts of global warming. But it looks like what really gets peoples' attention is unseasonable warmth during the winter. The query "global warming" on Google Trends follows a cycle, with the least interest during the summer and the most interest in the winter months.
