(lol) was just playing with you jilly.
  But to Billy's comment, same was true here. I live at a ski area and it's already closed-usually we're open until Easter. The sugaring season (making maple syrup) was very short and quantities produced were low. For syrup production you need cold nights- below freezing and above freezing days. Last time the weather was like this was back in the winter of '94. That's 1994--I'm not that old!(g)
PS: just got back from Florida and it was unseasonably warm there as well, mid 80's everyday.(31 here this morning, back to reality )

IMO, it's global warming, not to be blamed entirely on humans/fossil fuel burning etc. either, climate is cyclical (also imo), just like economic growth and the tides, ebb and flow.

See how blonde I am! In Seattle, we don't freeze that much so hadn't a clue what this was. Thanks for the info.

I didn't know what it meant either.

Here in Northern California we had practically no rain all winter until this month. Which means snow is finally falling in the mountains.
Odd weather, indeed.
