Same. The fact that "winter" weather in KC last year more or less started with two back-to-back snowstorms in mid-February skewed things quite a bit.

I got married on January 25 of this year in KC, and it was 50 degrees, sunny, and I stood outside the church comforably in a strapless gown, waiting to go down the aisle. Granted, it was the NICEST weekend this January, but still. Where we are right now (Great Lakes Naval Base, on Lake Michigan near the Illinois-Wisconsin border), it's been consistently truly arctic. The ice cover on Lake Michigan is insane. We're coming to KC this weekend for a wedding, and while I'd hoped it would be considerably warmer by now, I'll take it.

The winter of 2009-2010 - wasn't that when it snowed so much on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? We had drifts waist high on our porch on Christmas Day and we canceled our family Christmas because we had some family coming from an hour or two south and family coming from Lawrence and travel was treacherous.

Then in 2010-2011 it seems like there was a lot of snow too. I remember it being snowy/cold up until the second week in February and then suddenly it was warm and everything melted and left a big muddy mess.

And then one winter, I think 2008-2009, it was unseasonably warm all winter. I liked that winter!

Not even close to being the worse winter.

As a whole, certainly one of the worse winters, though no individual parts of the winter came close to the 2002 ice storm.

It has hit -32F in parts of central and northern Wisconsin this March.
