While reading a quaint little piece in the Raleigh News & Observer this week, I ran across an interesting detail. The article details the history of the area of Chatham county flooded by lake Jordan in the early 1980’s.
“Their great-grandfather’s pencil records of the weather and river height are still visible on the front. “Frost June 3, 1884,” reads one. “Hottest days known for 10 years March 24, 25 1907 94 degrees,” reads another.”
I am shocked to hear that Chatham County had excessive temperatures back in 1907. Clearly, this is an error. SUV’s didn’t turn up in Chatham county until the mid 1970’s and were unavailble to contribute to global warming during the 1st Roosevelt presidency.
It is interesting to note that they had a frost in June of 1884. Was that due to global cooling?
