ENVIR, does it seem warm for mid December?


Today's my birthday. Does it seem a tad warm for this time of year?

According to weather.com the average high temp for Dec. 12 in Chicago is 31 F with an average low of 25 F. The record high is 57 F (1990). We're at 50 F as I write this.

In honor of the weather, I'm going to move Al Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth, up my Netflix list.

What's the deal with posting The Scream? Today is Edvard Munch's birthday. He was an expressionist painter. Here's the beginning of what Wikipedia says about expressionism.
Expressionism is the tendency of an artist to distort reality for an emotional effect; it is a subjective art form. Expressionism is exhibited in many art forms, including painting, literature, film, architecture and music. Additionally, the term often implies emotional angst – the number of cheerful expressionist works is relatively small.
