Welcome to a real winter, the first time in a decade! This winter condition is benign thanks to snow cover so although cold the condition remains Satisfactory. Snow is the world’s best insulator, inside a snow pile the temp is an easy 30 degrees or so and no air temperature fluctuation can occur. As a result the plant material won’t experience the extremes, high or low. This gives the plants a better chance at survival. Look out for grass killing moles and slugs. They will be moving around feeding on your lawn, leaving tracks you’ll see in Spring. Again compliments of the snow. Perennials will winter nicely for the same insulated reasons. The cold air itself is damaging, certain shrubs that grew above the snow line will show dead branching come leaf time. Spireas and roses (including shrub rose) will likely see die back. You can only trim the deadwood after the plant fully leafs around June 1st or so. As we watch and wonder at this long cold season keep in mind that this cold air we feel is not from our area. Polar air is leaking South from South drifting high pressure. It seems the freezer door is left open and we feel the bitter cold. But with California experiencing severe drought and Great Britain having the wettest season in over 100 years I don’t think we have too much to complain about. Be prepared for a rapid Polar Ice melt this summer. In the meantime Wisconsin’s winters will continue to trend milder as time moves forward, but when the air temps fall below zero, be thankful for a deep snow cover.
