In February 1878 was the premiere of Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony. It was so lit it set a record for the hottest February for a century!
Seriously though, why was that month so hot?

I live in Finland and this winter has been ridiculous.
Last year, -20C avg, it would even hit -36C where I lived at times.
Right now, 2C; Tomorrow 7C.
I might as well get ready for potato season.
Finland tropical paradise 2077 :DDDDD get your shades ready and drink your coconuts.

Its interesting seeing Krakatoa interrupt the warming for ten years in 1883, its vast tonnage of airborne particulates blocking out the sun's heat - those were the years the famous paintings of ice skating on the Thames, iirc. Ripper era too - luckily only happens once in a blue moon...
