Bardstown, KY(Zone 6a)

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

Doug

Cedarhome, WA(Zone 8b)

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.

Orlando, FL(Zone 9b)

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.

Northumberland, United Kingdom(Zone 9a)

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

Resin

central, NJ(Zone 6b)

Def warmer than usual even though it was a very cold past couple days and we had snow today it was 50 ......very wacky weather

Nineveh, NY(Zone 5a)

40's most of the week. Its a bit odd, but I'm not complaining! =)

KC Metro area, MO(Zone 6a)

It's been pretty warm with temps regularly in the high 40s or low 50s so far this winter. No siginifcant snowfall amounts yet this season either.

Oviedo, FL(Zone 9b)

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.
Martha

Acton, CA(Zone 8b)

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.... its down into the 40s at night! Can't hardly stand it. Looking forward to spring again. Need to buy a coat!

Kure Beach, NC(Zone 9a)

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.
Ah,Mother Nature. Such a crazy gal.
Barb

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

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...

South China, ME(Zone 5a)

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. :)
I FEEL LIKE A YO-YO!!!

Clarksville, TN(Zone 6b)

Much warmer than usual. Also up and down a lot.

(Arlene) Southold, NY(Zone 7a)

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!

Loved palmbob's answer!

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

I did too, Pirl. reminds me of my DD in Brisbane shivering in 48 degree winters longing for spring...guess she forgot where she was raised...grin

(Zone 7a)

MUCH warmer than usual. Palmbob, you can have one of our coats. We don't need 'em!

mid central, FL(Zone 9a)

80 here today and it should be 70 so i had to vote warmer than usual. the AC is crankin'.

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

Warm and 50 degrees F today.

Rosamond, CA(Zone 8b)

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.

Calgary, Canada

We have only had a week of real cold winter weather.
This week it is going above freezing during the day.

Alexandria, IN(Zone 6a)

So far it has been a little warmer than usual. As long as we can keep that Arctic air up there in Alaska, we will be milder.

Perth, United Kingdom(Zone 7b)

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.

Charlotte, NC(Zone 7b)

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

Southern Dutchess Co, NY(Zone 5b)

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.

Phutthamonthon, Thailand(Zone 10b)

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.

Martha

Conway, SC

Above normal temps for this time of the year. We have been in the 70's all week long. February is generally the coldest month for Zone 8B here in Conway SC. I'm not complaining.

Nineveh, NY(Zone 5a)

my snowdrops and daffodils are out of the ground already. =/

I'm hoping that the ground hog will not see his shadow. : )

Greensboro, NC(Zone 7a)

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.

Abilene, TX(Zone 7b)

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.

Ada, OK(Zone 7a)

The weather forecast here in central Oklahoma say it's going to be in the 65-80 F range all week with lows at night in the 25-35 F range. Strange weather...

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Yup...we are getting low to mid 40's at night and mid 60's to mid 70's daytime....what is usually our (3 week long) Spring.

Madison, IL(Zone 6b)

How about the new USDA plant hardiness zone map? I'm now in 6b; instead of 6a. I know that my growing season seems to get longer each passing year.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

A horticulture professor friend of mine told me last year that they were working on the new map and lots of folks were going 1/2 zone warmer. here is a link to the new map.

Too warm for this time of year; and we need more rain desperately.
