The Winter of No Winter...So Far

As the last day of 2011 winds down, the snow machine has still yet to fire doubt the area skiers are buming, me? Not so much.

Since I don't ski these days....the mild, but muddy and rain filled weather, while not pleasant, still beats the alternative...if this is Global Warming, I'll take it!   We have not been below double digits for a low...13 perhaps the coldest morning, and that was one of less than a handful below 20 degrees....the highs, almost without a glitch, have stayed about freezing....nothing on the horizon, for the new year, suggests anything will change soon...although I am sure we will be getting some January like weather in the next weeks to follow...meanwhile we will enjoy the ice free roads and heating bill savings.

Photo-Grand Lake and the surrounding farm grounds remain unfrozen as 2011 turns into 2012.....a rarity indeed.
