Is this a mild winter? What constitutes a mild winter? One milder than last year? Where I live in Central England the last few mornings and evenings have been pretty chilly, but I am in no doubt whatsoever that winters are milder then they were not so long ago. Sure we get some cold snaps with sub zero temperatures, but very rarely do we have any lasting proper winter weather which brings the country to a halt. This winter I've only seen a very small dusting of snow on one occasion.
Mind you the way some people dress when the temperature dips a little you'd think we were suffering a siberian winter.

For us down South we are definitely having a milder winter thus far than in recent years, there have been noticeable changes because of it; more fly hatches but also the trout are going into spawning later than normal on some waters.
Our biggest worry is not how mild it is, but more how dry it is, we are desperate for water and have been since January/February time.
It will be interesting to see if the weather becomes as harsh as it has been last year and the year before...

Yes I thought it was still late Autumn and not winter, or are we thinking there are now only two seasons winter and summer.

You tell them
Oh in newcastle my roses have just came out again and sweetpeas are still in bloom , tomatoes have just finished this week as well
So you might say it's been a bit mild down here .
Next couple of months might have a sprinkle of snow though 5-6 inches is usual but we still get to work
Just like you jocks
Not like the soft southern jessies 2 inches ( of snow) and the world stops down there
