With warming, everyone will want to move to Washington state

It wasn’t your imagination: US experienced warmest March ever
[Via Ars Technica]

As record temperatures swept through the Midwest and trees bloomed early across the Northeast, lots of talk focused on what an unusually warm start spring was having. The folks at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have now crunched the numbers, and found that it wasn’t just unusually warm—March was bizarrely hot. With 15,000 record high temperatures set in the US, it was far and away the warmest March in the nation’s history, and only a single month—January of 2006—was as far off from the monthly average.


Only 1 state had a cooer March than normal. And Washington state may be one of the few places where water issues are not a big problem.

So, I expect to see a lot of people start moving out there soon. Of course, it has high incidence of depression because the overcast skies and short winter days provide so little sunlight.

It will be interesting to see what happens.
