Unfair Weather Today

79 degrees in Dayton Ohio at 4:15 PM. A whopping 60 degrees in Auburn Hills. 240 miles apart, yet nineteen degrees. That’s a one degree difference every 14 miles.

    yea, I don’t know what was wrong with my math there. 12.6 miles is right for Detroit to Dayton.

    But, your comparison of 12 miles/degree to Newcomb TN from Detroit is wrong. It’s 1 degree per 24 miles. ((240+240)/20)

    hey johnny,

    I dont think the point was that anyone isn’t grateful for the sun and its energy this planet continues to underutilize. I believe the point was, these cities aren’t that far apart, so just based on some trade winds, hi or lo systems, fronts, etc that the rate at which mercury molecules bounce off of each other, and thus measure heat, was significantly different in detroit/dayton while quite similar for dayton/Newcomb ….

    just an observation….

    I’m sure if the degrees in question here were the water temperature while you shot Pirates, you’d be noticing a difference too, and most likely saying something….

    brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
