It’s 72 degrees Fahrenheit (22.2 Celsius) here as I type this, so warm that we’re debating on whether or not to turn on our air-conditioning to cool down the kitchen where Cindy is preparing our holiday meal for tomorrow.  72 degrees on Christmas Eve!  Unbelievable…

      Given that I utterly hate flip flops (always have), boots would be my only choice. 🙂

      My wife an I love the winter months and the snow and ice that normally come with them. This winter season has been a huge disappointment for us so far…

      We’re fairly close to you; we’re located in Montgomery County, not far from the C&O Canal and the Potomac River. Looks like we have warm weather ahead of us for at least the next week. 😦

    The weather certainly isn’t normal for this time of year. When I walked out in the yard this morning, I noticed it had even fooled the dandelion that was blooming…on Christmas Eve in Ohio.

      A dandelion on Christmas Eve… wow!

      There have been reports on the local news about daffodils and a few flowering cherry trees beginning to bloom here in our region — I wonder what will happen to them later when the cold weather really does arrive?

      I thought about that as I was driving home on Christmas Day in 60 degree temperatures. If a dandelion is blooming, are the fruit trees budding? That would be very sad if this warm weather destroyed most of the 2016 fruit crop in the Northern states. Just thinking!

      This image was actually from last spring; we have no ice or snow at all right now. It looks like we have unusually warm weather in our forecast here for at least another week.

    It was 80F yesterday [Christmas Eve} where I live, and today [Christmas Day] isn’t supposed to be much cooler. However, we had a large thunderstorm on the 23rd; lore states that thunderstorms in winter herald the coming of snow. Perhaps there’s cooler weather just days away.

      Yeah, I don’t believe it either. We are going to have our first Winter storm tomorrow night into Tues morning but the ground is so warm so whatever we get will probably not stick. I am guessing we will get it all at the end of Jan- early Feb. So weird.
