A Serious Lack of Winter

Not that I'm complaining.

Yesterday was sunny and almost 70 degrees outside. When we went out, I started with a jacket and a sweater over a long-sleeved shirt. I worked my way down from there until I'd shed the jacket and sweater.

Nobody really knows what to think. It's been mild all December and January. After having three harsh winters in a row, we love it--but we're all suspicious. You can't really trust Mother Nature, if you know what I mean. The trees are confused, the birds are out chirping every morning, and I'm tempted to start my spring cleaning.

Yet this nagging feeling says, "Don't believe it! Don't give in!"

It's coming. I can feel it. We're not going to escape it. It's going to strike when we least expect it--like, say, during spring break.

For now...I'm going to enjoy it.

How's winter this year for you? Like usual? Worse? Wonderful?

Winter here in Utah is almost non-existent. The ski resorts are struggling, the temperatures are warm, and the grass is green--well, brownish-green. I'm sure you're right and it will hit hard during spring break. But, until then, I'll be outside planting my bulbs.

Strange here in northern Virginia also. My friend's daffodils are beginning to bloom. But, like you, I suspect there's a storm or two or three around the corner. Still, like you I'm enjoying the warmth.

bah, I'm jealous. It is definitely winter here. We've had a week or two of 30 or below with a couple days of snow but mostly just humid FREEZING and gray melancholy clouds.

Same thing here in Mass. I'm sure we will eventually pay for it before spring. Can't say I miss shoveling. Cool blog, found it via the KB.

I have definitely learned never to trust AR weather. One day it is beautiful, the next - tornado...It definitely isn't boring, though!
