Is this Winter?

We are wondering if this is the calm before the storm.  Here in Virginia we have had some pretty strong winter storms in the past two years so our weather has taken us by surprise ... so far.  We are native Californians transplanted to the East Coast so this mild weather keeps us from daydreaming about taking a walk along the beach in the middle of winter. A bit of snow would be nice and of course we are still waiting to make our first snowman!
