Global Warming News

According to the AP:

Anticipation is growing for the "Elfstedentocht" or "11 Cities Tour," a national event where speed skaters race along a 200-km (120-mile) course beginning and ending in the northern city of Leeuwarden. This year marks the 100th year since the race began and if held, the tour would be the first in over a decade.
If it happens a bit more in the next few years, maybe instead of saying it is becoming more rare for temperatures to be cold enough, they will say it used to be rare. It has only been cold enough for the tour 15 times in the last 100 years and this year is one of them.
