Here in Chicago winter has been very mild, coldish but literally no snow, except Halloween and once in November. how is it in your area? include your city and how much snow is on the ground and how cold it is.

Same as Chicago here, I imagine. A short cold snap, a couple light dustings, but mostly rain and 40s. No snow on the ground. Hasn't been "established" snow all year. Grass is still fairly green in spots, as well.

Up north, they have a bunch of snow. I go up there fairly regularly, and for a month or so now it's a totally different world there.

Eastern Washington:
Just... weird. November was like February, and now December is like mid-October. We should have a nice blanket of snow by now, but the grass is still green. No snow in the extended forecast either. We've been about 20 above normal for a month straight now.

This would be perfectly normal in Seattle, but this side of the state normally has a real winter.

It's around 65 degrees here in Los Angeles. Obviously no snow and it hasn't rained in a couple of days. It drops to 50 at night, which is really cold out here.

Next week, it will hit the 70's and 80's, thank God.

Denver.

Weakest winter (so far) since I moved here in 2007. Maybe 4 inches of accumulation total to date. None on the ground, very little in the shade (though there is much more in the shade on the south side of the metro).

We had one week of cold/snow the week before Thanksgiving. A few weak storms resulting in dustings since. We are expecting snow on Dec 25/26.

Most days have been mostly sunny with temps in the 40's/50's.

Depends on where ya are in Denver. We've got 2-3 inches on the ground at our house right now, but overall it's been a dry winter. Supposed to get some more snow early next week so we shall see.

Phoenix... low 60s this week, low 70s next week. Obviously no snow on the ground, and a few days of light rain sprinkled in here and there.

San Antonio.

I'd say our winter has been pretty normal so far. It's incredibly mild compared to the rest of the country, but I'd say it's a tad warmer than usual. We typically experience 50-60 degree highs unless there's a cold front that comes through, which has only happened once so far. Usually the cold snaps are more frequent. The really bad one that came through several weeks ago actually gave us a real autumn as all the trees turned at once. Looked great.

Bob nailed E. Washington. My family was up west of Spokane for about a week. We definitely over-packed as it wasn't nearly as cold as it usually is. Raining instead of snowing, no snow on the ground, etc.

We had a cold November in northern New England and a pretty good snow storm on Thanksgiving. It's been a little warmer than average in December but cold enough for quite a few days with light snow. We had a lot more snow earlier this year than usual but by this time last year we already had a snow pack. Last year was just insane though.

Normal winter here in Athens. Warmer than last winter, but cooler than the "winter" of 2011-2012, which is all that matters to me. That kind of crap better never happen again; I need more than two seasons.

Annnd, on the Pittsburgh forum here, the crybabies are bawling about the weather in typical fashion. The only predictable thing about the weather in Pittsburgh is that Pittsburghers will ***** about it.
