Re: mid-winter update
Further, nothing in the extended 10-day forecast lower than 22F.
Still sitting pretty at 8b. If this holds, I will be HAPPY. My plants will be HAPPIER.
Additionally, and this is unofficial, but we have had what I would call "a trace" of snow so far, all winter. There were snow squalls that left maybe half an inch on grassy surfaces, but roads and sidewalks were just wet.
Normal for us for a whole winter is a bit over 20 inches. Now, we still could get there. February is often our snowiest month. March too can bring plowable snow.
