I can't vouch for the midwest, but as far as west Texas goes, we have had a very mild winter, and it appears that we will not get much of a spring,
it might just swing right into summer.
The weather is weird, unpredictable, and things aren't happening like they used to. For example, we had snow before Halloween out here. Unreal!
Yet January and February, the coldest months typically, it has been rather moderate in temperatures and very little precipitation. We've had to put
our large evergreens on drip irrigation to keep them from dying.
However, it wouldn't surprise me if we had a hard freeze in April. I don't know when to plant my garden. My roses, which usually go dormant and
lose all their leaves, grew all winter long. Naturally they're not flowering, but they never went dormant. I don't know what to think about this
weather. I'm sure there's a scientific explanation, but I cannot offer it. All I know is, don't consult the calendar to figure out when to expect
cold, hot, snow or storms.
