    We're in WI and the garden we thought was done in October had a harvest of arugula for a salad yesterday, some herbs still growing, and high is supposed to be 60 F today. Yesterday and Thursday night were MTB trail rides where normal winter would be skiing.

    We're really glad we got the fat bike in October. It's been working when trails would be closed. The kids are not so happy. One is a ski instructor, and the twins are on a Nordic ski team. My daughter did lessons on a patch of crappy snow and the boys are doing Nordic ski practice in running shoes.

    I was outside barbecuing in a light sweatshirt last night. My grass is still green.

    Last year it started snowing in October and didn't quit until April.

    Mid-60's today.

    Either 3 or 4 winters ago was like this for us. (My son's January winter Scout camp - we were in sweat shirts on our hike.)

    Then - all-time record snow in 2012-13 and the next one (last year) was brutally cold w/ normal snow.

    Michigan all my life and I'm now officially old - I want every day to be 74º and sunny.

    While we typically have very little to no winter in the terms you guys are speaking of, but it's been above average warm and rainy. It's raining right now and was a humid 84F. Friday.

    The great thing about science is it's true whether you believe in it or not!

    Why don't we just ban warm weather?

    Of course that depends on which scientists you want to listen to, and who is paying them. :lol:


    The great thing about science is that beliefs and ideas are always changing and adapting as new discoveries are made.

    Science is evidence based, peer reviewed and repeatable. You don't get to pick and choose what you "believe in" based on ideology, anecdotal experience or personal bias. Bad science gets weeded out over time by the peer review process.

    What I heard a month ago :

    "The El Nino this year is so enormous/pronounced/evident that even a bad first year meteorology student could predict it..."

    It's fantastic here in the Poconos. I wish it would say like this.

    I know my dogs eyeballs are about to pop right now because of the rain we're getting.

    We've had a number of intense wind/rain storms. More than usual.

    Big snow storm coming, reports of two feet in the Sierra Nevada range. We need it in the Wasatch range here in Utah to keep the ski crowd happy.

    El Nino isn't science, it's the name of a weather phenomenon. Your post makes as much sense as saying you don't believe in peanut butter.
