Well, now we've gone from warmest December ever to proper winter here. Still only 2 inches of snow, but it's pretty cold. The thermometer said -18C this morning (0F). And it should be getting colder still, with cold air coming in from Siberia. And then next week we should be back to +2C (35F). Weird weather.
Wouldn't really be all that bad if we got some longer cold spells, some invasive crop destroying insects have been migrating further north in the later years when the winters haven't been cold enough to kill them, it wouldn't hurt to get that problem taken care of.
