Yep, they were predicting a similar winter to last year's.

Heck, they often can't tell you what's going to happen five days from now.

Don't worry. We used fans from the dollar store.

That is so true! Tom Skilling's reports are closer to accurate but even he's made mistakes. No biggie though, as if I really want to know the temperature outside, I just open my window and look.

Personally, I'm loving this warmer weather.

Interesting that most of my friends here are complaining how hot it is outside yesterday. They're exaggerating it tho.
I live all my life in Malaysia before moving here, and this weather is cooler than our coolest day.

Actually, meteorological winter is defined as December, January and February, so I'm pretty sure Tom SKilling is calling this spring. The vernal equinox isn't til the 21st and I know I grew up being told spring starts 3/21.

It is abnormally hot, but I'm willing to bet that 2 or 3 weeks from now we'll be in the 50's and everyone will be wishing for these temps again. We'll get them, but probably not until Mid-May or so.
