Pretty typical to see those stems coming up by this time. The first buttercups (aka daffodils) usually bloom around the first week of February, only a couple of weeks out.

Ready for weekend sun and widespread 60s.  Got a bunch of trim to paint and really can't at 45-50F.  I've had my meager snowfall this season.  Yall can have the rest....just put me on the warm side of the low.

Speaking for this winter weather fan, I think I've been well beyond jaded and really to the point of being "dead inside" disinterested about winter weather prospects for years now. I don't really expect much for winter other than a handful of token flurry dustings. It's actually nice not to be burdened with disappointment and frustration about it.

It's honestly going to take a SHOCK & AWE blockbuster storm that paralyzes the region to even reel me back in at this point.

I've seen flakes this winter so far, and even a small handful of times of sub-half inch dusting. All good. Cherish every day. Enjoy the good days, and don't wish your life away.

Sucks for the younger generations who never got to see the snows that you all did.

Winter is quickly becoming a thing of the past. In the Arctic, sea ice coverage is dwindling. Snowpack is decreasing on average worldwide. A few places have a nice uptick in snowfall some winters, but the positive snowfall anomalies are greatly outmatched by the deficits everywhere else.

The positive feedback loop. When the main source of cold air is vanishing right in front of you, everything gradually gets warmer.

Makes sense, at least our dreams aren't getting crushed with a huge system missing us by 50 miles lol, haven't had anything close to track in years and it is sad i got so excited for a 2 inch snowfall from the ULL we got, but such is the case now

Try having your #1 favorite hobby of duck hunting tied to how well our winters and the winters north of here go lol adds a whole other level of frustration.

Understatement of all time. If winter sucks, duck hunting sucks. The last 3 have took sucking to a new level.

I do hope that will open the eyes of a different group of people to the reality of our changing climate. The older generations of outdoorsmen know these are warmer times. Forget about anthropogenic influence for a second, and the argument that's involved; the Earth is getting warmer.

Yea no doubt it is changing, wouldn't think anyone would really try to argue that much.  Guess it's the driving factor that everyone can't agree.

  Sure things are changing but at my location we have had some good winters the last 10 years.  Just in a run of 3 that suck.

  They made really great light sabers... as long as you dueled from a distance.  I kept one in our freezer for about a year in the late 1970's, along with a couple of snowballs and some large hail.  My mother was a patient woman.
Hire the left-handed --- its fun to watch them write.
