The Politics of Nostalgia

Throughout the advanced capitalist world and beyond, a xenophobic, nostalgic nationalism is taking shape. A flock of old and new leaders are rising up, declaring that our best days are behind us and that they are the most qualified to build a better yesterday. Forget about the future, they say, the past is now the place to be — but not everyone is invited.

Good morning! Happy Saturday. Finally the weekend! Cloudy and 42 degrees in the land of the Delmarian. Sun peaks out occasionally.  There is a south breeze at 5 mph. The skies will clear Wednesday around 4 am.

Today will be mostly cloudy, with a high of 48 degrees at 1pm. 19 degrees above normal. South wind around 5 mph becoming light and variable in the afternoon. Best chance for sun is later in the afternoon. Rain showers tomorrow morning.  A year ago, we had mostly sunny skies and a high of 32 degrees. The record high of 61 was set in 2006. 7.2 inches of snow fell back in 1990.

The sun will set at 4:55 pm with dusk around 5:25 pm, which is 1 minutes and 15 seconds later than yesterday. Today will have 9 hours and 37 minutes of daylight, an increase of 1 minute and 58 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with a low of 40 degrees at 5am. 23 degrees above normal. Light and variable wind. In 2016, it got down to 12 degrees under partly cloudy skies. The record low of -20 occurred back in 1984.

While today is expected to reach close to fifty, there are 6 weeks until Average High is 40 when the sun will be setting at 5:49 pm with dusk at 6:17 pm. On that day in 2016, we had snow and temperatures between 38 and 18 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 40 degrees. We hit a record high of 59 back in 1919.
