For us, it was like we had December and nothing else...not the usual brutally cold, snowy January and February.

We've seen many more years like last year than we have this year, however. It's much more common for it to be unusually cold in the winter vs. unusually warm, especially like this on a continuous basis.

Cleveland barely has had 20 inches of snowfall this winter...that is downright bizarre and far more out of the norm than last year...sorry to spoil your fun, but this winter sticks out like a sore thumb from the rest. Minneapolis is about 25 inches below its typical average snowfall. I can understand 35 inches of snow vs. an average of 45..even 30...but 20? That's just downright bizarre.

Yeah, this has been a really mild winter for the whole northern U.S. I don't ever recall a prolonged warm pattern such as this...wonder what this summer has in store for us!

The very thought of summer looking at this week just makes me want to pack up and head for Northern Canada

St. Louis is just too far south in latitude in the first place, under 39N. The sun angle there is already too intense

My hometown of Cape Girardeau in Southeast Missouri recorded a grand total of .3 inches of total snowfall this winter. The average is around 11 inches. I don't think any record highs have been set though. The high in Cape today (March 12, 2012) fell 9 degrees short of the record. Oddly enough, I think the Bootheel may have been the coolest part of the state of Missouri today, which is VERY strange.

We are well below our snowfall average here in Baltimore. Our average is 20 inches, but I doubt if we've even seen 6 inches. Its fine with me because I hate cold weather anyway.

Here in Northwest Arkansas we had zero winter and have apparently moved directly into mid spring temps it was 77 degrees today and tomorrows high is 80. I am kind of disappointed for me I prefer Fall and Winter to spring and summer. I am really hoping these temps dont continue to rise through out the summer months last year was plenty sweltering for much of the south, here in NW Arkansas we got up to 113 plus humidity and had 3-4 weeks of daily temps over 100...that is not my cup of tea.

Now that is ridiculous. Too far south? I disagree. 39N isn't the mark between great summers and bad ones. Go to Central Illinois and tell me those summers are tolerable, or most of Iowa and Eastern Nebraska. The heat and humidity in all these areas is pretty bad.
