I love it.

Let's all go burn a bunch of tires after work and see if we can really kick this Global Climate Change into gear!

January 1st was nearly 70 degrees here in the Triangle (central NC). January 3rd the high was just above freezing. Then by the weekend it was in the 60s again. It's like the weather is Bi Polar.

Here in Southern IL, it was 60 all weekend, and just now getting down to 50 for a high. No snow accumulation except for a half day of 50 degree weather melting 1/4 inch of snow a week or so ago.

It's been great.

I actually considered driving with the top down yesterday. On the one hand, great weather. On the other, what does that mean for summer if it's sunny and almost 70 degrees in January? It was so bad last year, half of Texas (including my house) burned. I'd really not like to see a repeat of any of that.

Here in Massachusetts it has been ominously nice... After the crazy October snowstorm which royally screwed up everyone's sense of seasons we have yet to see any accumulation.

That being said I am bracing myself for a major blizzard which, by my calculations, should be hitting us around May!

I've been enjoying the warm weather, but I'd still prefer a real winter. I don't mind the warmer temps, but I like my winters to have snow.

I am, but many of the people at work that wanted to go a group snowboarding/skiing trip are unhappy that most of the places within a few hours' drive of New York City do not have many open trails.

@thelarch: I was at Frozen Fenway on Saturday, and gametime temp (8pm) for the Maine vs. UNH Game was 56 degrees. Driving back up to Maine yesterday, From 10m when we left until 3:30pm when we got home, the temp had dropped 20 degrees from Massachusetts to Maine, you guys are having some great warm weather down there!

NO. >=\
I live in middle Tennessee, and I want my snow! We only get one, maybe two good snows per year on average, but this year it's looking like we may get NONE which would really make for a cruddy winter =(

vote-for5vote-against

No, I want snow. It's winter, not spring or fall, the weather should reflect that.

As much as I thoroughly enjoy the almost 70 degree weather here in Cali, I know we will be hurting w/o rain.
Until that rain shows up though, I'm not complaining anymore =)

vote-for4vote-against

I'm loving it, although I know it's just the weather waiting to mess with me- during the snow in october my car spun around 3 times on 81, and I know it's just waiting for me to take a long drive before we get hammered in nature's attempt to finish me off.

I hate it, winter in Cleveland is supose to be snowy and cold. I'm one of the weird people who actually loves the snow here and I'm actually sad to see it go in the spring. Plus I it's ruining my skiing season.

vote-for4vote-against

I am in Minnesota and it is 48 right now. We have no snow on the ground.
Our average should be 23 and that should be the coldest week of the year.
I WANT TO SKI!!! where is the snow???

vote-for3vote-against

Northern Michigan here, I've pulled out the snowblower once this winter, which in itself is pretty ridiculous.

The ski resorts and local businesses don't appreciate it that much, can't really go snowmobiling without snow...

vote-for7vote-against

I'm liking it.

I mean...except for its implication of impending catastrophic climate change the likes of which humans have never seen.

But whatever I'm wearing shorts in January.

vote-for4vote-against

I've been thoroughly enjoying it. I'm sure we'll have a major ice storm that will knock out our power before it's all said and done but I think it will all be worth it. I haven't gotten my typical winter depression yet which is usually in full swing by now!

vote-for4vote-against

Yep, love it. But it is really bizarre to see people in shorts and a t-shirt at 7000 feet in January. In fact, it snowed a little last night, and there are still people walking around in shorts today.

It's also kind of terrifying.

vote-for5vote-against

I'm in Florida, so my opinion likely doesn't count (but to be fair - all things being relative, anything below 70deg has me pulling out the sweatshirts, sooooo).... Loving the mild weather. Can't beat short-sleeved shirts and flip-flops!

"Winter" in Santa Cruz is usually pretty mild but it was simply beautiful today and has been for the last few days. I love it because I get to go mountain biking later into the year before the rains come and keep us off the trails.

vote-for6vote-against

It has been nice, mainly because the heating bill has been lower and I haven't had to worry about driving in snow (not that I really need to with my Subaru). I've also been able to enjoy running outdoors well past what what I though was going to be possible this year, which is great, because I really loathe running on the treadmill. Tomorrow will be near 50 in Wisconsin, but it looks like we're in for more seasonable temps by Thursday.

Not a mild winter here in China, unfortunately. Everyone says its colder than usual.

At least I'll be leaving for Brazil in two weeks, where it's summer :D

@thelarch: Stated like a true resident of Massachusetts...

I am worried that when the seasonal weather finally arrives no one will be prepared for it and life will grind to a halt for a week or so...

Ski resorts in the warm hit areas are all screwed. They can't even blow/make snow since, it will all melt, so why try. Any businesses that count on snow, like bars and restaurant waiting for snowmobilers are taking a huge hit. We might be enjoy the feel for this warm weather, but I'm sad for the financial impact.

vote-for3vote-against

Live in northern Michigan and we have a snow making factory here. They have been working like crazy to make snow for all the ski resorts.

NO! I got a great deal on a snowthrower a couple of months ago...still in the box.

I always say that "everyday like this gets us closer to Spring", which will probably be in the 90's every day! ;-> Wacky weather, but I like it!

vote-for3vote-against

I like it, I'm in Missouri. Bought a heavy jacket and new tires for the usual blizzard, hasn't happened yet! It was in the 50s today. I'm hoping to just ease into Spring without the bitter cold.

Snow stands for the winter
I love snow

I'm also among those who aren't thrilled by the warmth this winter. Snow is gorgeous, and I miss it. And my allergies are going bonkers without decent freezes. C'mon, winter, get it together.

vote-for2vote-against

Loving it! I bike to and from work each day, so the more snow-free and mild days we get, the better!

That said, today we got snow (northeastern MA), and it was a beautiful bike ride into work!

Got out on the bike for almost 80 miles this weekend. SO NICE.

Winters here in Los Angeles are always mild but it's been warmer than usual. I bought a bunch of soup mixes that I haven't used because it's too hot. I too am worried how hot it will get this summer... I prefer mild summers (I don't have AC) over mild winters.
