Were Tony and I to chat today, the subject of the relatively balmy weather would have almost certainly arisen, as in this hypothetical conversation.
“So how are you liking global warming so far?”
“I don’t think it’s been this nice on the first day of winter since [insert distant year].”
“Do you think it’s getting warmer, generally speaking?”
“Sometimes, but it depends on the weather, if y0u know what I mean.” [I think Tony would flash his excellent smile at this point.]
