None here in Ohio either
My wife mentioned that our crocus bulbs are coming up. We've had a few frosty morning but no snow accumulation. Afternoon temps are in the '50s and '60s. We've had some warmer periods around Christmas time but never heading into January like this.
My Sister lives in....
Colorado a little bit West of Denver. Boy, are they buried out there. She wants me to come out for a visit. Yeah, sure, terrific, be right out. Just send me some pictures. I'll look them over while resting in my chaise lounge
where is "here" folks?
I am in mid-hudson valley, ny. weather sunny 70. winter very mild so far. I personally counted 9 flakes in november, few hard freezes so far. there is plenty of time for the cold still. we have had abundant rain this year, and if the wet joins the cold, a couple of good blizzards are possible. abundant hot chocolate is in my survival supplies.
I asked where the "heres" were because when I heard 115 inches, I thought maybe buffalo ny or tahoe, ca. of course those in the witness protection program should use discretion.
too bad it doesn't snow when it is 70. have the beauty, without the chill, that new 'warmth friendly' snow also should not fall on stairs, porches, sidewalks and roads. when you wish why stop.
ohio, that "here" I know, reply was for OP, i'ts foggy here
Buffalo is usually not even in the running. They normally get a lot of snow in the beginning of winter but then Erie freezes over so no more lake-effect.
Ontario, on the other hand, doesn't freeze. We usually win the golden snowball for the state and we don't get nearly as much snow as just north of here in Oswego. Oswego is just small. If it were the size of Syracuse, it would win. There are some places there that have doors on the second floor so people can still get out.
When we first moved here, the average snowfall was over 120 inches so it's been creeping downward since then.
never been there but I hear the stories
I must have passed through when I took the train to chicago several times. dated a woman from bufalo that had moved to nyc. we went to niagara during christmas, very specatular with all the ice. the closest to syracuse by car were the finger lakes region. very pretty there.
thanks for the "here" I do not know where everybody lives. when most think of ny they think 'city'. I do not miss the flatlands of illinois, though I sometimes wish chicago was down river. ny has quite a range from atlantic beaches, couple of great lakes, adirondack mts state park (largest in usa w/o alaska) farms, forests and usually four seasons. avg. snowfall here 40-50in this season 0 in , couple inches of rain tonight
We normally get 115 inches of snow
So far we've gotten 12 inches. That's north of here. Here hasn't gotten anymore than a dusting.
So much for the Farmers Almanac..El Nino is here Diana
Beautiful Saturday here too.
Just absolutely gorgeous. I'm so thankful for global warming, it's helping to
make this world a better place to live in already. I could go through the whole
winter like this. In fact, when I lived in Florida years ago, I DID go through
most of a winter like this, LOL. This is just great!
"The January thaw"
Usually hits here in January or February, but ours came in the last couple of weeks of December. We did have one light snow.... very light.... just stuck to metal and roofs..... a little bit.... before that.
I heard the cherry trees are blooming in Washington, DC.
My "cool weather" grass has grown some. But my lawn tractor is tucked away, and will stay that way. (Drive yours down, if you like.)
I suspect winter will hit with a vengeance come February, March, and maybe April. What I especially dread are ice storms.
Just hope that there will be a let up in time to have my lawn tractor picked up for its yearly maintenance. I don't have a pick-up truck, and they only charge $35 round trip. I usually do that in late February, but I'll be watching extended forecasts closely and might do it earlier.

Re; "The January thaw"
We don't get too many ice storms up here Angeline. Its the ice dams along the eaves and gutters I dread. Lets hope its the winter that never was.
If the Cherry trees are blooming in DC, we are all set. It will be Green Beer time before we know it.
I've been watching the weather up there on weather.com
And it's burning me up that I can't gloat!!! It's warmer in New York than it is in Texas!!!
Cut it out, George!!!
Yep, nice and toasty up here Josh
Glad I didn't go to Fl, TX, AZ or where ever its suppose to be warm. I'm just hanging around here nice and cozy waiting for Spring Training to start. Next month I think. We have this new super pitcher on board now at 40 mil. plus. Wonder if he gets more if they teach him English. Can't wait to see who catches for him.
Farmers Almanac says we are suppose to have a cool summer. Yeah sure, just like their winter prediction. We'll probably be all cooked up like a "freedom" fry.
Yeah, we settled......
....for "the other Japanese pitcher," who hopefully won't turn out to be another Hideki Irabu.
At least the Big Eunuch is on his way back to Arizona. Maybe his 43 year old body will fare better in that climate.
That IS funny
You head down to the warmer southern states and then we have the warmest
winter up here in a long time. Don't pass that around there too much or they
may run you back out of Texas, LOL.
I could always threaten to move back....
....and bring the cold weather back with me.
Won't happen though, we love it here.
