Is the world cooling?

It's been awhile since I wrote up a blog and there is good reason, we could say that it's been very boring weather wise and no shocking glo-bull warming stories or is there? There still has not been any sunspots and it's having an effect on the world already. Antarctica which just broke it's record ice extent last year looks like its going to top itself this year. Speaking of this year here are my May stats for Netcong:

Rain: 3.98"
Days of rain: 18
May 9th: Record rainfall 1.22"

Last Freeze: May 1st

Average temp: 57.50"
Average high=70 Average low=45

Actual Temp:54.905 (-3.21)
High=65.08 Low=44.73

May 9th: Record low high (48.3)
May 20th: Record low high (52.0)

May ended up 3.21 degrees below average and it wasn't just here, it was the country as whole almost. Let check out the other months:

Jan +2.896
Feb +0.077
Mar -0.04
Apr +3.28
May -3.21
Year: +3.003

Ok so the year is still on the warm side but only for the southeast up the east coast, otherwise the rest of the country is below average and the world has now fallen 1 degree in average temperature since 1998. Undoing that 0.6 degrees of warming that Gore is always complaining about.
