    In Westchester County 8 had December tomatoes in 2006 as well; roses too. Since the. I’ve had January and February tomatoes; from my freezer, the ones I picked green in October and froze in December after they ripened on my windowsill. I know for sure that my experience this year was shared by the rest of the world and that therefore there has been global cooling.

    Hardiness Zone 8 doesn’t touch Maryland, so there’s no way a central Maryland garden jumped from 7 to 8.

    This entire week is going to be snow, snow, snow, with highs at ZERO degrees F some days!

    This is by far now the coldest mid-January to mid-February winter I have ever seen.

    USDA plant hardiness zone for Maryland (my county in NC is 7b min of 5 to 10°F)

      The warmest January for Washington, DC was during 1950 when the average temperature was 48.0 F. The second warmest was during 1932 (46.8). There has been no January within 4 degrees of 1950 ever since!

    The world doesn’t really NEED Polar Bears anyway, except for rugs and Coke commercials.

    I saw a plant nursery that claimed Cinnamon was in the climate zone for Fargo ND. It turned out that if you moved the plant outdoors during the summer it would not die. I think this may be the way the climate zones have been moving.
