Here's what I remember about 2006...
There was no snow in February when we moved, something I rejoiced.
In fact, that whole winter of driving between Michigan and Illinois with a newborn baby, there was hardly any snow. Some days, I didn't even need a jacket.
When I stopped driving in July, it was so hot some days I couldn't leave the house because I thought it unsafe for Penelope, only six months old. This from a woman who walked her newborn to the park in February.
Thanksgiving day, it was so warm Carolyn went outside with a miniskirt. No tights.
So it should come as no surprise 2006 was the warmest year in more than a century. So why am I surprised?
