First off, Happy 2012 everyone!
I figured I just had to post the fact that we here in zone6b (at least in Niagara Falls, Ontario) seem to have escaped old man winter! I’m not gonna lie and say we haven’t had some cold weather, it was -15C here the other night! However, that was only ONE night. Generally, its been very mild here. Most days anywhere between -1C to +4C but as high as 7C and 8C. The nights have been mild too, anywhere between -3C to +3C, but like I said, -15C one night!!!! YUK! As far as snow cover goes, NO SNOW! Last year at this time, we had dealt with two major storms dumping loads of snow! This year, the odd flurry… that’s it! Nothing has stayed on the ground.
So I looked at the forecast and it looks like we’re in for ups and downs here over the next few weeks, but again, the overall trend looks mild for this time of year. It looks like some snow in the forecast… maybe old man winters wants to stop by and see the falls after all! We’ll see what happens.
