PHL temperatures over the past year. Torchy, particularly the past 2 months. Note temps in C, 1C=1.8F

Amazing, my two most hated times of the year (weather wise) perfectly marked on that middle graph, in blue. 
 

Smarch and the dark doldrums of Novembore.

old school man cold for Utqiagvik (Barrow), could be the coldest start to FEB since 1984, quite a change of pace from the recent +20 monthly departures during winter, for year 2019 was over 10 degrees warmer than the long tern annual mean - remarkable

Last year at Barrow - yes, remarkable

Absolutely beautiful morning out there. Nice sunrise, biting wind, temps dropping. Life is good even if it’s for 2 days

Guess what my wife saw in our front yard? Tulips emerging! 

Ours are coming up too and they don't get much afternoon sun.

So true.  Late March into most of April and Nov I cant stand. 

Some flurries this morning.  I think with those we had some sort of precip 13 out of the first 14 days now.  It's been pretty April like this month.

Though Aprils have been better of late.  I can't stand the weather in December.  It snows less than people think and when it is not snowing it is almost always cloudy and those near 430 pm sunsets....

While the festive December mood ordinarily dulls the blahs associated with the lack of sun, this season has had so little sun it seems. I truly cannot wait for the huge amount of evening sunlight that we'll accumulate in the next 30 days.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but this year I'd take abundant sunshine over any late season snow storm (snow weenies gasp).

Oct thru March rocks and I'll throw in only low humidity 70 degrees day April thru September for golfing days :). The rest sucks, IMO.

 Carry on :)

I feel for those of you who don’t enjoy the weather year round at our location. We are in a good spot for the full range. Sure I hate a cold March and a dark, boring November but if they don’t turn out that bad I’m happy year round just about.

Our daughter is in Australia and they don't have that distraction during June.  That would be worse.

The summers are getting uglier.  It is a reason when discussing about if we do move, where, the first words out of my mouth are not south.

Yeah, seems like a fair amount of people here have lived in this area for a good portion of their life. I could see why you’d want to go elsewhere and I recommend it. Obviously, I’m a huge advocate of upstate NY. If you love summers with barely any temps. over 90 and then a solid 5-6 months of true winter you got it. And you aren’t far from Philly.

People are nicer people there too ;)

Usually its copious amounts of snow that make people flee the area for greener pastures.  Nope...not for the snow weenies of PhillyWx.  Like a Goose flies south instinctively in the winter, snow weenies flock north for deeper snow packs.  Then once you arrive in bumblesticks NY, you'll miss a slow crawling stacked nor'easter that dumps 35" in your old stomping grounds.  You'll ask Heisi to crash on his couch to chase the storm you'd be missing.  This lack of snow is going to alter the population count of greater Philly

Lol. No way. If you are getting 100”+ of snow in upstate NY you don’t cry over a missed SECS or MECS and getting those in ONE of those in a winter is a crapshoot. 

Tombo sleeping on Heisi couch would be awesome though. 😂

I like hot summers but then again maybe it's nostalgia.  If anything, I'd like the seasons to be a bit more pronounced.  Something like SLC Utah where it's guaranteed hot in the summer, guaranteed to get snow in the winter, and otherwise generally sunny.
