4017 Bad winter?

Friday, February 27, 2015

I don't understand why everyone around here is grousing about what a bad winter this has been.  I absolutely understand why people to the north and east of central NJ would feel that way --- they've been slammed.  But it hasn't been that way here.

Yeah, we've had some snow fall almost every week since early January, but we've measured it in single digit inches, usually 2 or 3, 5 or 6 at the most.  And in between, we've had enough sun to mostly melt it, so there's not more than maybe six inches remaining on the ground.

Yeah, the temperatures are lower than usual, but I don't think we've gone negative yet, the few teens have been only during the night.  We've had little wind, and lots of sun.

So yeah, it's winter, but I don't think it has been that bad around here.

I don't understand.

Maybe people see on TV  that it's so bad in other areas, so they feel they should have the right to complain, too?

After last winter in central NJ there's no reason to complain about this one. Yes, it's been cold this month and the wind chills temps have been about -20F. But this is Jersey and it's February. We haven't had our usual 24" back-breaker. So just everyone hush up and be happy you don't live in Boston or Buffalo.

Theres a solid 18" of snow crusted in my yard. Mountains still in the shopping center parking lots. Its been well below 0 on multiple nights here. It NEEDS to get warm soon! Its been a moderately bad winter. But it was warm through December, so that was really nice! Last winter started in October!
