Today, January 19th, is the first time this winter that snow has actually accumulated on the ground. This is by far the latest I can ever recall this happening in my lifetime of living in the northeast. We also had a 70 degree day the first weekend of January, which I can not recall ever happening either. Is it global warming? Who knows, all I know is that to the best of my recollection nothing like this has ever happened before during my lifetime.
