2012: A wild- and weird-weather year

First, we had Hurricane Sandy.  Then, we had a nor'easter.  More coastal flooding arrived last week, causing another 1,000 power outages.  This was on top of the power outages that still haven't been remedied since Sandy--in many cases, the damage is so extensive that it's too dangerous to turn the electricity back on.  Thousands are still homeless, or trying to repair homes to make them habitable again.  People will be telling terrible stories about this storm for years--see the comments here.

On the other hand, I can't remember the last time the weather was so relatively warm that I got all the way through December without having to wear my boots even once.  Weird.
