It took me six tries to get this posted. Major historical event here.
I shouldn’t have to explain why.
OK, I ran into a cartography challenged individual who I respect greatly so here goes the rundown.
The little green circle is the North Pole, or as close as I can get on this map site.
It’s December 30th, 2015.
The temperature is above freezing. (0.1 C)
A few years ago I thought it was significant that it was raining instead of snowing at 86º North in June and it was. This is off the charts.
