If you think this summer has been cold, it’s only because your sense of "normal" has been skewed by the extra-hot summers of the past few years, and perhaps you have some lingering trauma from last winter’s brutality too. This summer is actually pretty average as far as temperatures go, according to a state official…"It’s been cooler than the last four summers because the last four summers were all excessively warm," David Robinson, the state climatologist at Rutgers University, told Suburban Trends last week. "There’s nothing all that remarkable about this summer in the long term. What makes it seem well below average in the temperature department is a function of how warm recent summers have been."
