You have had a pretty mild Winter, so far, but you will likely pay for it in February and March. Spring arrives about a month earlier here and Fall arrives about a month later when compared to NY too.

It has gone below zero here a couple of times for one or two nights, but most Winters here have only gone into the low teens a few nights. It usually drops to 25-45 at night and 50-60 in the afternoons. We have had 2 big snow storms in the past 35 years here. One was 10" and the other about 8". We usually see one or two snow storms a year of 1-2" and then a couple of ice storms a year. Some have been pretty bad, but when snow or ice falls here, the afternoon temperatures and Sun usually make it disappear quickly. Before moving here I can remember one NY snowstorm where we had 37" in one snowfall and drifts as high as 11' across a road near my house. It was 3 1/2 days before the plows opened my dead end street, and they did it with a bulldozer. Shortly after that one I began trying to convince the company that I worked for to transfer me South, but it took me 4 years to be successful.

Yup...those are the usual winters. I like seeing NC warming up as we get it soon after that...thanks...

The Hudson, where you walked across, was my stomping grounds for many years...sailed Haverstraw Bay a lot...miss it.

There have been some beauty's from time to time...luckily my position has allowed me some flexibilities...now I don't have to worry about it at all...just the cleanup, which I'm getting too old for... If it weren't for my kids and grandkids, I'd be South in the warm...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.
