Entering Winter - 2014-2015

I took time to compare

 . . . just a few photos from 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Yep!  Things are definitely Very Early this Spring,
especially experiencing temperatures in the 80's at this time of year...

I think early is somewhat of an understatement. Rochester broke the all time high yesterday by 20 degrees. Scary...

Great comparison...it's so fascinating, seeing what difference a year can make. It seems we are in the same boat here in PDX. Some things are so much earlier than usual, although some things are very late. Can't wait for REAL spring to get here ;-)

Understatements seem the norm these days, troutbirder. :-)

Hi Scott, I'm wondering if we'll Have REAL Spring...

This has been such an unusual winter and spring! I think the lack of snow killed my daffodils, I have seen no sign of them as of yet. But everything else is waking up a good month early up here in southern MN!

Interesting comparisons. The weather makes such a difference doesn't it? Yesterday we got a foot of snow, if you can believe that. I'm wondering if we'll be getting spring too. :)
