Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Way too warm all winter. Did we have winter?

Tomorrow, highs in the mid 80's F, has been ranging from the mid 70's to the low 80's for the better part of the last 2 weeks. Night temps in the mid 50's. Bloom times for trees and shrubs anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks early.

Messing with our many local farmers who count on spring farmers markets. Stuff like asparagus is 3 weeks early and will be finished before some local farmers markets open for the season.

We have not had, all winter long, a succesion of hard frosts and cold weather sufficient to either kill off or render completely dormant some common insect pests.

Also, while we are not in a drought phase, it certainly has not been a wet winter or early spring, and ground water reserves are not being adequately recharged so far to sufficiently replenish ground water reserves.
