    When I moved to NC people mowed their lawns in December and the forsythia bloomed in February. The average low was 37 °F with the highs as high as the seventies for February.This year the avg low for Feb. was below freezing with snow mid month.

    I live in the ‘transition zone’ where we get a dusting of snow about once every five years so ‘Climate Change’ is much more noticeable. We are getting snow in the winter now and the summer temps are maxing in the low nineties instead of getting several days in the high 90’s to the low 100’s in the summer as we used to.

    I’m an English midlander: roses-in-January is simply unimaginable to me.

    I suffered a mild case hypothermia out in the woods in the vicinity of Camp Mackall, NC during early Dec. 1980. Uncontrollable shaking, loss of some motor function and slight decrease in cognitive ability. And many a morning during that 2 week period during the last week of Nov and first week of Dec we had frost on our military intermediate sleeping bags. Earlier in November we had broken the ice on muddy creek there in the slide for life. That was during the old Phase I of SF training/selection.

    Then for 4 years or so, a considerable part of which each winter was spent training in extreme cold and high alpine environments, I suffered no cold injuries of any type.

    Then I was back to Camp Mackall again as a trainee for the top level of military SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) training and I got hypothermia again!

    Funny how things like that work. There is absolutely no doubt in this former SF medics mind that over the long term mental stress more than physical stress makes one more susceptible to cold injuries. And I’m pretty sure the physical vr. mental stress factor is the exact opposite for heat injuries.

      Camp Mackall, NC, is a bit south of me.

      I noticed it is the temperatures around freezing that are the most dangerous especially when it is humid or raining. That is when I put my livestock in. 10 below and snowing is normally not as hard on them.

    In 1750 it was very warm in the UK with birds laying eggs in Scotland in January. It is described in the Proceedings of the Royal Society.

    The Central England Temperature mean for January 1750 was 4.0°C – not very warm. February and March were pretty warm at 6.7°C and 8.2°C respectively.

    Do plants ‘flower’ more in short sunny spells when they are cold?
