The winter of 2009/2010 was one for the record books! This is my house in January, but it looked like this most of the winter. Today, as I uploaded these photos, it is 62F and I have my windows open! Today is already the warmest Jan. 29 in Chicago history, toppling an almost 100-year-old record 15 minutes before the sun came up.

Curious, in Madrid snow is not usual like in Michigan but the last winter with a beautiful white mantle was in 2010
