Does it seem a bit chilly to you?

I reported yesterday that the Denver County clerk's office has begun to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. What I didn't know at the time is that when the ruling striking down the same-sex marriage ban was issued it also came with a stay. So clerks in Boulder, Denver, and now Pueblo are disobeying the stay.

Gov. John Hickenlooper has urged the state AG not to appeal the ruling.

The polar vortex is back! Let's first get beyond the little technicality that to those who study weather the term “polar vortex” has been around for a long time and has a particular meaning. Since the real genuine polar vortex last winter the term has come to mean a cold snap in popular culture. And it looks like the recent Pacific typhoon pushed north, causing cold air to push south over the Midwest. That means colder temperatures this coming week. It won't get below freezing but temps 10-18F below average are expected – as far south as Arkansas. It could get to 41F in Chicago. In Detroit where temps have been below average for June and July we may not notice much difference.

Proof that global warming is a hoax? Nope. British Columbia is expected to be 20F warmer than average. And worldwide this was the hottest May on record, in spite of the below average temps in Michigan and much of the rest of America.
