February 10, 2014 | It has been a very mild winter. I have only felt compelled to break out the long pants a couple of times.
Last week additional proof — as if any were required — arrived in the form of my gas bill. Consumption was down both month-to-month and year-to-year. For the latest bill, covering mostly January and the beginning of February, usage was only .8 therm per day, compared to 1.8 therms per day the previous February, a drop of over 50%.
So, when I see headlines like "<someplace> bracing for next storm" I simply shake my head and go out to enjoy the sunshine. That is Schadenfreude, technically known as "neener neener."
