first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest This winter has been everything from warm, cold, beautiful, dreary, to just plain strange in every way. To look at it so far, we take a recap of the winter in an equally odd way.via GIPHYFirst of all, a quick lesson in computers. A GIF ( as seen above) is an electronic image file type, standing for Graphics Interchange Format. (Fun fact: The GIF acronym pronunciation is currently in a heated debate across the internet. Its creator pronounces it “jif” while many talking heads on the interwebs say it should be pronounced “gif” because of the g standing for graphics. It’s a silly debate.) GIFs are unique in that they support animation without audio, making it easy to share small video clips. In this blog, we’re looking at our reactions from each week of weather with entertaining pieces of media brought to us in GIF form.Let’s take a look at the historical weather information for each week since November 27, 2016. We are using information from the Ohio University Airport as compiled by Weather Underground, the nearest location to the Ohio Ag Net and Ohio’s Country Journal corporate office in Columbus. Temperatures are noted in Fahrenheit. Actual temps are first with deviation from average noted as plus or minus degrees. Example: +3° Max Dev Avg means the maximum temperature recorded on the day noted was 3 degrees warmer than the historical average. Weekly differences from the week before are noted as Max and Min Week Chng.Yes, far too much work was put into this blog post.
