Yesterday, Jeremy Freese’s post about freezing days got me wondering about Ithaca, so I looked it up.
The closest city in the database was Binghamton, 50 miles away, and it has 145 freezing days a year. Falls neatly in between the two Jeremy mentioned, Chicago (130) and Madison (160); I had anticipated worse.
It’s still taking time, adjusting to the climate, especially after years in Boston (97) and, argh, Palo Alto (only 2!).
