NEW YORK: Cherry trees are already in full blossom. Meadows are green. People in T-shirts, pants and sandals do more outdoor activities. Is it January or April? Temperatures in New York have hovered around 10 degrees Celsius this week and soared to 21.7 degrees on Saturday, breaking the previous record high of 17.2 degrees set in 1950. Skiing resorts have not enough snow, but golf centres have attracted two to three times as many people as they usually do. New York City saw a November and December without snow for the first time since 1877. Xinhua
