We could use a wet winter here, as many parts of the country are facing serious drought in 2012..

definitely sad. left work today (in tx), and it was in the 70s. while that should be a pleasant temp, it gives me shivers because it makes me feel like our awful summers are almost here. the last one was terrible. i need to move to minnesota (wishful thinking!).

I'm okay with a warm winter. These idiots can't drive in the snow. They either go too fast, or hardly move at all.

Just got around to reading this. Thanks for posting! I love reading his blogs.

He said exactly what I brought up. Some people dont understand snow is beneficial in some ways.

"If we don't get significant snows during the latter part of winter, the odds of a damaging drought during the summer in the Midwest will rise. The soils will dry out much earlier than usual without a deep snow pack to protect them, resulting in a much earlier onset of summer-like soil dryness. Water availability may also be a problem in some regions of the west due to the lack of snow melt. Fortunately, most Western U.S. reservoirs are above average in water supply, due to the record-breaking snows of the previous winter."

Fleas & the old folks love hot & dry weather. Fl does get alot of rain annually but not so much in the winter compared to summer. I have a neighbor from fl. She said the summers were brutal.
