I forgot to include that we got 2 inches of snow Saturday into Sunday. It was good wet stuff, but it didn't hold up very well to today's temps and sun. I also did a little more research on the temps over the last few years. Because I compared this year to 2015, which isn't really all that fair. Because 2015 was a very cold winter. I looked at 2014 and 2016 and here is what I found.
Jan. 13.5 17.7
Feb. 14.2 20.2
So even 2016, which was the worst winter I have seen since living in Old Forge, was colder than this years 23 degree average temp.
