This post was originally written in June 2008, when Cascadia was deep in the throes of our formerly-normal summer kick-off weather pattern known as Junuary. 2016 is about as far as you can go on the other end of the spectrum. We’ve broken uncounted heat records since April, and yesterday was another sweltering extreme. But 200 years ago, much of the planet was dealing with snow and frost the whole summer long.
