Reporters at the Sochi Olympics have moved on from talking about how crummy their hotels are. Their new passion? Trolling all of us who are dealing with a seemingly endless Snowmageddon with a stream of tweets about how balmy things are in Russia.
Of course, all that super-warm weather is causing some difficulties with the actual Games, but journalists covering the athletics are taking the time to point out the fabulously blue skies, perfect beach weather and stunning sunsets they're seeing all the time. To which we say, "GRRRRRRRRR."
True, it could very well be that we're seeing a dangerous example of global warming's effects, but it's so cold we're still jealous. Just look at these pictures!

It is seriously tee-shirt weather in Sochi today. Amazing sun on the Black Sea in February. People jogging in shorts. #CNNSochi
