    Is it just me....

    The temperature at the top of my Aruba.com page says 60 degrees?? Maybe they are just trying to make us feel better that it is 30 degrees and snowing here. I'd take 60 degrees and sunshine right now!!

    it has got to be an error.
    if it were 60 degrees in aruba, it would be totally bizarre and unusual/unheard of.

    I figured that - but it did make me chuckle this morning as I sit here watching the temperature drop and the snow come down here in MA!! I keep checking the webcams in Aruba to make me feel better! Have a good day everyone!

    I checked the weather channel and it said it was 82-no way it could be 60! Couple more weeks and we are there-am so excited as I sit through our second noreaster-outside to shovel,at least it will get me some exercise before bathing suit time lol!

    That would be a record if I remember correctly. One I'm sure they would prefer not to set.

    Bottom line..."Errors happen." I would imagine that you, and many of us, would consider 60F a heatwave right now. Aruba 60F...no way.

    I have read before (can't remember where) that the "coldest" temperature ever recorded on Aruba was 69 degrees F.
