Delmarva Neighbors Enjoying Warm December Weather

SALISBURY, Md. - The calendar says we are only two weeks away from Christmas but if you step outside, if feels a lot like mid-spring on Delmarva.

WBOC took a trip around Salisbury on Friday and found plenty of people taking advantage of the uniquely warm winter temperatures.

Neighbor Steve Smith was still trying to get into the holiday spirit on Friday morning by putting up his Christmas decorations outside of his home.  But rather than doing so wearing a coat, gloves, and a hat in December, Smith had on a t-shirt and slippers.

"The weather is unbelievable.  This is the first year I can ever remember being outside with shorts on putting Christmas decorations up and feeling like I should be at the beach."

Smith wasn't alone in enjoying the balmy December temperatures.  Marcus King of Salisbury was washing his car while Old Man Winter was asleep on the job.  And while King's car is now shining like a stat, he worries that his winter may be coming in like a lamb but will go out like a lion.

"Unbelievable.  I can't believe it.  It make me wonder what we are getting set up for.  Whether come January, we are going to get a couple of blizzards or what."

And over at the Elk's Golf Course in Salisbury, there was no shortage of golfers waiting to get on the links.  But playing golf in December with temperatures in the mid-60's had to make it a little tougher to get into the holiday spirit.

"Yeah it does," said Ken Freeman of Bishopville.  I would rather, in a way, be out and doing some Christmas shopping.  But it's hard to resist."

So while it appears the warm weather is hear to stay for at least a little while, many on Delmarva will get into the holiday spirit a little differently this year; in shorts and sunglasses.
