    Our low bottomed out at 37f (WU, WC). I never thought we would have a solid 10b winter in my lifetime. Yesterday Hayward was second warmest city in the state at 62f. I'm giggly,I admit it. Croton 'Petra' is perfect. Maridol and Musa,Ensente are in green summer like leaf. Or San Diego winter green-lol.

    I spent years building that dome over Hayward. It paid off! Heck,I'm a regular botanical Noah.:D

    btw- I think San Francisco had a 11a winter..never went below 40 or even mid 40's in the Mission.
     
  2. 37 degrees. It's cold, but it sounds soo nice. There's something so Christmasy, about low temperatures like that. My low temp last night was about 62 degrees, and I hated it. :( It had been getting down to about the lower 50s, which is good weather for campfires, hot cocoa and cuddling, but it's been warm lately. Grrrrr! :( So what is this 10b zone that you're talking about? Who made that zone? I only know the Sunset Gardening zones, and I figured that Hayweird is zone 15 in that system. Happy New Year! :)

    Btw, as you mentioned about Z15. Hayward and most of the bay area was a Z9b for decades. In 2012 the USDA changed the climate rating to 10A. So,as you can see,to have a bona fide 10b shows some serious climate changes very quickly. As science says- the poles and the western sides of continents are warming,changing faster.
    I've seen it. I've lived here since 1968.
     
  5. So, you're worried about global warming? :)
