It seems we in SW/WC Ohio (and the rest of the mid section of N. America) have entered our Halcyon Days. This is when there is a warm-up in December, usually in the middle of the month.
This year the Halcyon Days are about 10 days late, better late than never.
The HD's came in on Christmas with a lot of fog and a gentle rain that eventually washed all the snow away. The temps got well above freezing during the day and at night just hover around that mark without going too far below it. We will be flirting with the high 50˚F's this week.
Enjoy your halcyon days friends, winter will return.
