I'm missing it. It got to 60 degrees F here in Chicago today on the last day before February. It's nuts. I'm really expecting the cold weather to extend into the spring, and I predict a blizzard to hit us in mid April
Being from the lower part of Texas...we will be paying for it with a torturous summer heat wave...anyways...so keep up the mild winter...please. I hate the cold weather (Only good for snow skiing...anyways...and picture postcards!).
Definitely a lot milder in Scotland this Winter. This is my third Winter back and the past two years I have been told it was me returning that was the jinx, with record breaking low temperatures and levels of snowfall.
It has also, however, been a very mild and gentle Winter in Southern Germany, without the usual heavy snows and Arctic temperatures. The first ever Winter night I spent in Munich - a few years ago now - it was -40 degrees. Breathing was only possible through a thick scarf - but I still made it to the Hofbrauhaus!
This is the mildest winter we've experienced in Western NY. 45F and sunny today - insanely warm. My kids were outside in just sweatshirts and loved riding their bikes. I won't ever complain about the warmer weather, but I do hope we don't pay for it with snow in May.
Interesting, very interesting, I happen to be in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, at this time, and I can't believe the warm weather. I thought it was just happening here, so Global Warming is indeed alive and well, as someone mentioned. But, hey I'm not complaining, I live in Southern California, where the weather is mild almost all year 'round.
I am not missing winter at all! Back home in Michigan, my family is getting a normal amount of snow, but I'm spending my first winter in Utah, and we've literally had about an inch of snow all year so far on the ground (mind you, I hear the mountains aren't too bad) when we should have had 10+ by now!
Winter for me (generally speaking) includes rain, rain, and more rain! So, NO! I don't miss it We did have a week of snow which I don't mind even though I had to shovel lol...but the paycheque suffered ... Now back to rain LOL
I'm having a hard time enjoying the mild weather, to tell you the truth. I'm not sure why- maybe it's just that I'm bracing for what's coming. Whatever the reason, it doesn't feel "right" this time of year in St. Louis to have spring like southern breezes and crocus popping up February 1st. I love the seasons, even if I'm very ready for the next one when it comes around. I say come on winter, bring it on- I'm ready to go sledding!
No, I absolutely do not miss winter, and if we can breeze through to spring without a single flake of snow, I'll be the happiest person I know. I moved to my present locale to escape the snow drifts and ice storms:)
Coldest Russian Winter in 30 years... that's crazy. Everyone knows the planet is getting warmer. Those Russians must be up to something hoarding all that cold air.Can't Al Gore do something about this deep...
Sitting in my one-armed camp chair this afternoon, enjoying a bourbon laced orange juice, the air temperature was about 65 degrees F under a deep azure blue sky lightly washed with high cirrus clouds. A recon patrol of...
This past month has been extremely cold; I am hard pushed to remember a time in the past where it has reached such low temperatures.I was just having a chat and realised that I now see -11°C as “not too bad”. How...
Now to you Northernors (and those around the globe that have mucho snow!)...even those in Dallas (PDH). That may be no big deal...but down here...especially this early (Dec. 4)...our winter is barely starting! ...
