Winter has arrived in the South

OK, when it dips below freezing for a day or two I don't mind, but falling all the way to 18 degrees wasn't part of the deal! It will be that low, or lower, tonight. We don't take chances, we leave a faucet dripping in the house and in the workshop. The last thing anyone needs is frozen pipes. But I am sorta of chuckling because watching the national weather it looks like the northeast (our old stomping grounds) has a good shot at a big snow storm later in the week. As of today's report they think the most snow will be right over I-95 from Washington, DC up to Philly to New York. I know weather reports change, but they are due, over-due, for snow. It is late January after all. It is cold here but the sun is out and I don't have to go anyplace! What's your weather like?

It hasn't been real cold here in southern Oklahoma yet either. Today will be in the lower 40s, but little wind. Tomorrow is supposed to be back up in the 50s, but windy. We got some snow on Saturday, but it was gone by Sunday. It got down to 25 last night, we haven't seen the teens yet. I am ready for spring!

Here we also have winter season. But the winter is tolerable. Till January 15 the winter was not cold that much but on January 16 the climate changed and cold and windy days are here finally.But no freezing as we rarely meet zero degree.

If the cold weather does not come, then it will not come. I am not surprised at the warm winter. This is the effect of El Nino. Think back to 1997-1998 when the effect of El Nino was extreme. The winter of 1998 was much worse than today.
