Cool temps at Artscape
Published: September 19, 2012
Nobody has seen a summer like this in Baltimore. Nobody. We’ve had pretty much the most amazing weather ever—the usual two weeks of decent spring weather was flip-flopped to only about two weeks of normal (read: oppressive) Baltimore summer heat. This on the heels of a winter with almost no snow, when common wisdom dictates a brutal summer following such a mild winter. And then there were the punctuation marks of the summer—fucking insane summer storms that included water spouts, tornadoes, and even a super-rare derecho (basically a non-rotating hurricane) which knocked out power to all those houses back in July—there were two of those, in fact, according to some. And then there is the most bizarre and unsettling of this summer’s climate anomalies: perfect, balmy weather for Artscape. Seriously, who wasn’t walking around the whole time thinking, What the hell alternate reality is this ?
