What happened to winter? We are still waiting for its appearance.

What happened to winter? We are still waiting for its appearance.So far this year, winter has not made much of an appearance. Although there was a freak early snowstorm in the Northeast here in Georgia Winter has not amounted to much more than a few frosty mornings.

Here is it, the second day of January, and I still have a few peppers than can be harvested from a still alive (although not exactly vigorous) pepper plant.

I guess from a purely economic perspective, a mild winter in a real boon as we save on heating fuel and the cost of snow removal.

But from an aesthetic point of view, it somehow does not feel “right.” It’s January and it’s supposed to be cold.

I’m certain that this is probably one of those cases of “be careful what you wish for,” as there is plenty of opportunity for some real winter weather in the upcoming months.

But for now, I’ll just take advantage of the nice weather and get some yard work done!”

Be careful, you may get what you wish for. I hear you on that. I, too, have been pleasantly surprised to be enjoying milder weather. I am getting to the age where I do not enjoy shoveling snow, so I will hold my breath for as long as I can and hope for the best. Have a great 2012.

I think it is here! We had a low of about 40 this morning and the forecast is 28 in the morning.  For Florida that is cold!

We've had a couple of 2 to 3 day cold snaps with a dusting of snow on the first day. But then it's back to several days of warmer weather.  Everyday I see people still walking around in t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops.  No complaints.  I can deal with winter in 2 to 3 day increments.  :)
