Missing Normal Weather

I had hoped when the fall season crept into existence I might find the things I had missed. The briskness of the air during the day, the changing of the leaves, fireplaces returning to use, changing out cotton sheets for flannel ones and even hoping for winter to return with a significant drop in temperatures.

But that is not what has happened, with the exception of the changing of the leaves, which I can be perfectly honest are still coming down, here on January 14th. What is happening?

We are used to getting large amounts of rain during the months of November through January but so far all we have seen is two days of rainfall since Thanksgiving. The temperatures remain around the high 60's to low 70's most days and I have seriously missed those night time temperatures dipping to well below freezing. We've only had about a week of that over all if you add all the days up which is really out of the normal for us.

Am I the only one noticing this or have you noticed a difference in the weather where you live as well?

Our grass has even managed to stay green all this time, and our willow tree which usually has lost all its leaves by mid-December still has green leaves left. My rose bushes even have buds forming on them. So what is up?

Would love to hear what the weather has been like for you where you live?

When we moved here to Oregon in the month of December in 2014 it had already snowed a few times. So far we have yet to see any snow and the mountain ranges have gotten very little..

It has been COLD here in Missouri. VERY COLD. We've had a few light snows as well. But this weekend it is supposed to be in the 50s and I am SO THANKFUL. We need a break. Blessings to you my friend! Praying for you today :)!
