Very mild winter so far, but February is usually our snowiest month so we'll see!

We just had some snow, but the temps didn't drop much below 20 at the coldest, so not bad. Now hanging in the 30-40s which is about usual for us in January.

It's been so warm we had the A/C on in the car yesterday. Unheard of in January. The tropicals in the yard are happy though.

Warmer than usual - if things carry on like this, apparently they're reckoning it'll be the warmest winter in over 300 years.

Weird, actually, here on my Saugus, MA hilltop. We've been down in the single digits, and up over 50 & had the major snowstorm in October. I have big buds on my quince and hope my little roses survived all of this strange weatherness.

It's been 5-10 degrees warmer than usual pretty much all Winter. The temps have only dipped below freezing three times. Last year, December and January were colder than usual. At this point, we were getting ready for our second snow.

Thus far December has been our coldest month with temps in the mid 20's. We are averaging about 17 degrees above norm. And it is a rollercoaster...yesterday it was 67 degrees at sunrise..today it was 54 degrees at sunrise. Temps are predicted to be in the 80's for the weekend...

We've had a seriously strange winter for Maine! For instance, Sunday morning it was NEGATIVE 11 with a high of 19 for the day. Here it is 48 hours later and we are @ 37 this morning, going for a high of 45. My blood doesn't know if it should thin out or stay thick a little longer. :)

Much warmer than normal. Yesterday we had 51 and sunshine until the rain arrived around 5 PM. Today it's 49 now with mid 40's for tomorrow. We have had several very cold days but only one snowfall and the rain eliminated all of it. I'll be digging plants with a friend who's moving. I could enjoy it if all winters were like this!

We are in the high desert which typically gets really cold in the night, from the low 30's to more typically 20's or even teens and day time temps in the 30's to low 60's but this year the day temps have been 60's to 80's.

Visiting Scotland, these are hills near Crieff where highlands begin, only a trace of snow on the tops, they're often white this time of year.

Warmer than usual, and no snowfalls so far. Three half-open yellow roses in my yarden now. Obviously, it is the effect of global warming.

Warmer than normal here, too. The dogs are loving that we are able to leave the door to the backyard open for them to come and go as they please. I love the idea that my electric bill will be "affordable" for a change. LOL

Incredibly warm for us. The lack of snowfall is both a joy and a concern since what usually happens is there will be a very wet spring/summer instead. Many of the orchardists worry about the trees blooming too early and then being struck by a late snowstorm or frost. This area was overwhelmed with a wet autumn that destroyed the pumpkin and other gourd crops, so I'm sure they are nervous about this warm winter.

About normal for here, going down to 25C at night from 35/36C during the day December was cold (for here) day time temps fell as low as 70F/21C for a couple of days, believe it or not this feels cold and everyone gets out their pullovers or jackets.

Warmer than normal which is great for my electric bill but it weirds out the garden:lol: My daffs started poking up about 3 weeks ago and are about 4 inches tall already. Now I'm hoping it won't freeze or at least not for a long stretch.

We had some cold in Dec. But its been fairly warm of late. The great thing is we've had more rain than normal. Not enough to break the drought, but enough to put water in the cattle tanks and keep the fire danger down. I did notice that I have daffodils and larkspurs coming up. But we normally have our coldest weather in Feb. and its not unusuall for us to get a mid-seaon warm up that doesn't last.

I got to go from zone 5a to zone 5b. Still I have a zone 6 Glossy Abelia that has done wonderfully for me the past 4 years. And doesn't show any signs of stopping its skyward climb. I'll need a ladder to prune it down to manageable size.
