We have had the warm winter here as well. Very little snow and none that was on the ground for more than a week, as a warm spell would follow. Lots of rain compared to a normal winter. Which we were extremely lucky as the rain was very close to being freezing rain most times it fell. Those ice storms are horrible in every way. IMO no winter. I like snow and cold temperatures. The most unusual thing was no Frost in the ground this year with no snow cover.
