So far the winter has been very mild to the area. There were very few cold days and many nonseasonal warm days. It is quite unusual for this time of the year. In a way, I am pleased with it. It is better than heavy snow and ice. Only sign of cold winter is frosty leaves on the ground in the morning … which soon (frost) melt by the warmth of the morning sun. Hope it stays this way for the rest of the winter this year.
