We had a couple of nights in the teens early in the week, but temperatures rapidly climbed back into the upper 50°F's by the end of the week. It was downright balmy on a late afternoon excursion to nearby downtown Greenville (SC).
Of course, we may have hard freezes to come, but the warmer winter has encouraged the Prunus mume (Japanese apricot) and flowering quince to open flowers already, a good month in advance of when I'd expect them.
And normally in February, we sporadically start having the warm days like we had today.
But although it's unusually warm, I'm just as glad not to have the abnormally cold winters of the last two years, when we had much more snow and ice and cold weather than we normally see in the southern mountains and piedmont.
