The calendar says that it is winter, but Mother Nature seems a little confused.
It is New Year's Eve and for a couple of weeks, our low temperatures have been around 64F. Our high temperatures have mostly been in the mid-seventies but we have reached 80F a couple of times.
You can read about this year's Crystal Coast fall at this post, A Wet Early Fall 2015.
Fall brings some great memories, but because of the warm weather it has been a challenge to get in a fall mode, much less bundled up for winter. One thing is for sure this past November's weather was memorable.
The water temperature in the river is close to 70F and that has prompted some holiday boat rides.
We will be on the lookout for winter, but from the forecasts that I am seeing the cherry tomatoes that I am picking beside our house are going to be safe into early January 2016.
It is unlikely we will see Raymond's Gut frozen over in January like it did last year but it is hard to predict weather.
