Editor’s Notebook: 4/26/11

• So our friends at the City of Norwich Emergency Management Office tell us this afternoon that we have topped 80 degrees for the first time since Sept. 24, 2010. Thanks, Al Gore!

• Which of course means that we are soon, as of this writing, expecting a round of thunderstorms. Phew! I was worried about that drought we were having.

• Seeing as how I’m clearly a little weather-obsessed this afternoon, I’m going to call it quits and get out there and enjoy it while I still can. If you’re reading this and it’s still light outside — step away from the computer, Gollum!
