It is a beautiful day today: The sun is shining, the sky is blue and clear, and the birds are singing. Mr. Nitro's temperature probe indicated the outside temperature was 58 degrees at 7:15 AM this morning when I drove to my office. The temperature inside my office was 69 degrees at that time. It is forecast to be in the 80s today. It is a bit breezy, but the breeze is not uncomfortable because of the warmth of the sun.
