    I am not ready for winter to end either...but this has been my thought for awhile. I have a feeling spring is getting ready to come real quick. Seeing new growth on a lot of plants.
     
  3. Yea me too Mike. I remember last winter lasted until the end of April.....I was hoping for one more freeze but that looks like a pipe dream at this point. As long as we still get somewhat cooler temps until end of march I'll be OK

    It has gone over 80 every day where I am at. Some days, the actual temp went near 90 and this was in January. The land of endless summer.
     
  8. Wow, I would hate to live there then..... I wouldn't want blizzards and piles of snow every winter either, but at least some semblance that it is winter. It is too hot and humid in Florida for too many months to not have a few months of nice weather....
