Blossoms and mosquitoes in winter
The trees are blossoming and the mosquitoes are ready "early" this year.

Me thinks our seasons and months may not be adequate or accurate anymore.

Anyone seeing blossoms particularly "early" this year?

here's our plum tree which usually flowers in mid-late april....yeah....

Re: Blossoms and mosquitoes in winter
Lovely picture! :)

I don't know if it's any consolation to you, OP,
but I assure you everything is as normal as can be over here.

February and -25°C is exactly the way it ought to.

Not saying I like it very much, no.
flick
chilly
verycold

Wish we could have some of your spring :(
Waiting for it is getting massive...



Peace.

Book of Matthew

32] Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
[33] So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
[34] Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
[35] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
[36] But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
[37] But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
[39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[40] Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[42] Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
[43] But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
[44] Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
[45] Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
[46] Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
[47] Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
[48] But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
[49] And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
[50] The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
[51] And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


I firmly believe this prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes

But people may say "This happens all the time. After any hard freeze you will see all the greenery return early"

Well, my friend, I say to you

Never have we seen it from one corner of our nation to the next

never before!

not just our nation

all over the world

Summer doth indeed draw nigh!

Re: Blossoms and mosquitoes in winter
im down in Mississippi by the way

This is the first time i've seen this happen!

I mean, there's flowers in my yard. at the places where the snow stayed longest in the shadow of my trailor, now there is fresh green grass.

let us also consider

birds all over the world are migrating in the opposite direction

this happened before the ice storms!

before the bird die offs even started

birds have been flying north toward certain death

ive had birds ive never even SEEN BEFORE chilling in my yard this winter and they are still here. i feed them every day. about 20 of em, 3 or 4 different varieties

The combination of La Niña and high Pacific North American (PNA) oscillation levels together with low NAO/AO values has made the western US unusually mild this winter. Even so, it's normal for the West Coast to be rather mild...they don't call Washington the "Evergreen State" for nothing...

Thanks for the reply-

I'm in Colorado and so I can't speak so much for Cali's weather, although I've spent some time there. I've noticed over the last several years there has been more of a tendency than not to have high pressure over the western part of the country with an opposite pattern in the east and over Europe. A lot of it seems to relate to the AO (Arctic Oscillation) and the NAO (North Atlantic Oscillation). When those were highly positive, it was an almost opposite pattern here in 2006-07 than this past winter. That was also an El Niño winter.
