Trust me I'm not complaining at all but I can only remember, for myself, one year that had a milder winter than we seem to be having this year. With the exception of that one short cold spell where we got down to 14 degrees and a couple of other days it's been fairly warm and great. Now I know that things can turn around quickly and a friend of mine cautions me that we will pay, in March, for this great warm January weather because usually the warm January weather means an ice storm or two come February and/or March.
I don't know about his personal weather prognosis but I've noticed a lot of motorcycles running around and more crowded fishing ramps with the warmer, than usual, weather and for myself I'm liking it. I just worry more about severe storms that often accompany stark changes in the weather as it goes from extremely warm to bitter cold but maybe we won't have too many of those transitions.
