We speculated a couple of weeks ago on the air that this might happen, and now it officially has.

Before Renee's last day here on the Moose Morning Show last Wednesday, we had joked on and off about how she was leaving for warmer climates so naturally Maine would become warmer than Florida as soon as she arrived.

Since we've been battling somewhat of a heatwave here in Maine over the last couple of days, I decided to check the weather over in Central Florida. Turns out the high temp where Renee is today will only reach the mid 80s while we'll be climbing into the mid 90s here in Central Maine. I will say that I think it will be a little more comfortable where Renee is today than here in Maine. Buuutttttt I just couldn't resist the opportunity to point out that it's going to be warmer here than there today.
