> Winters up here aren't what they used to be

Umm, how did they used to be?

(I don't have enough experience with Sedona winters to have a historical perspective.)

They used to be a lot warmer. Snow rarely fell before Jan. and many years all you needed was a long sleeve t shirt during the day.

I've hiked in Jan. and Feb. in a tank top in the past. Most years I never had the need to wear my down filled coat at all and this year I've already worn it about 5 times .

Long time residents say last winter was one of the coldest they remember.

Possibly random fluctuations, then. Maybe the pools will be open in January.

According to Silver Bear's website it's pretty warm in Sedona today.

Silverbear's website was last updated at 3:46 pm on 8/1/11 (mid summer ) so yes it looks pretty warm. It was 32 today and the 'feels like' temp was 26 - to me that's cold - down jacket and gloves weather.

I can guarantee you, the pools will not be open in Sedona in January, where I live they open it May 1st. We can still get snow in April, actually it is more likely in April than before Christmas.

Do you mean Big Park as in the Village of Oak Creek or somewhere else? If it's the big park in the village, that's not far at all (20 minutes) and the weather is pretty much the same as Sedona, maybe a touch warmer (according to my car thermostat).

Here you can find the weather for Sedona or anyplace Sedona 15-Day Weather - AccuWeather Forecast for AZ86336 (http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/sedona-az/86336/daily-weather-forecast/336862 - broken link) you will see lows in the twenties (and we've already had them in the teens) but the highs beat the NE. We're in a bit of a warmer spell right now, it was much colder last week.

In my (short) experience, VOC/ Big Park is VERY different from the northeast. If it snows it usually melts quickly in VOC (although the snow may stay for a while on the rocks). If it gets sunny it will be well above freezing in the daytime, very pleasant to walk in a jacket. Nights can get cold however.

Although Silver Bear is not updating he does still have historical data available.

Problem I've noticed with the snow thus far is that its not warming up long enough for the last batch of snow to melt. It seems to just keep piling up.
