    We started seeing "California winter" weather here as of 2 weeks ago. We don't get any snow in this region, but there's plenty of frost during the mornings hours when our low temperatures are around 30. Grass has finally gone dormant for the most part, and the rain is becoming more frequent. That's about the extent of our winter weather.

    I agree. Too warm of a winter so far. I have spent a good portion of it sick though....sticking old flu

    If we were to get a sudden freeze here in the Orlando area, the damage would be very extensive. The plants would have NO time to acclimate.
    Hell, there are new buds/blooms on a lot of the plants already. They think Spring is on it's way!

    I just hate when my "vacation" gets cut short and I have to start earlier & work harder for my money.

    Grass slowed down later than normal. And with rain and humidity it may well start it earlier than normal. No cold weather in sight for the next week. Our temps have been above average for 30 of 38 days. Sometimes significantly higher. Today was stinking humid. If we make it to February without a cold snap, the likelihood of a strong front pushing through becomes a lot less. We didn't freeze last winter and I'd say there's a fair chance we won't this year.

    To date I haven't been able to string more than three straight days off. And I'm including weekends.

    I've heard of job security but this is ridiculous !!! It hasn't even made it below 70 yet this evening.
