Default thanks for this.

I am also up a notch. I have noticed a difference in the garden, especially with first frost date as I grow a lot of tomatoes and squashes and the season is extended. I used to have to cut buddleias down to the ground but new growth is starting about 8 inches up the past few years. There are a lot of other examples. ( like energy usage ! )

Looks like I'm still between 8a/8b, and the weather has been accordingly unpredictable. 2 years ago, we had over a foot of snow for almost 2 weeks (really unusual for lower elevations in western Washington), last year we had about 2 weeks of single digits (even more unusual for my area), and this winter looks to be one of the mildest on record! Don't even get me started on spring and summer! One year we get a week of over 100F and the next it hardly gets above 80! It's driving me nuts!!!!

Ok, I feel better now.

Looks like St. Louis has changed a bit as well, although I can honestly never remember exactly which one I'm in anyway, lol... I can tell you that my rose bush still has half of it's leaves, and they are green! I mean really?! It's February already, shouldn't they be dead, lol... It's just been too warm. In fact, I have only needed to bring out a sweater for a few days about a week ago. Otherwise, it's been in the 50's and 60's F here.

I love global warming if that is what this is! Hope to live long enough to plant my orchids outdoors like they do in Miami.
Going close to 60 on Tuesday here in Pittsburgh!
Bring it on and let the sun shine in january!

Jay;

I'm out in neighbouring Chester County and it looks like I moved from 6b to 7a. Wonder if that explains why we haven't had winter this year?

Cheers.
Jim
