Not really correct about 2010/2011:

Message from Mike coastal CT

In your location (USA upper East Coast), it’s not really correct that both winter 2010 and 2011 were below normal or “bad”: In fact, in those two winters (6 winter months)…4 were above normal and only 2 were below. None of them had lows below your normal (zone 7) zone .

NWS Philadelphia shows:

December 2010 …. 4.7 F below normal/No below zone lows
January 2011…. 3.7 F below normal/No below normal zone lows
February 2011….2.4 F above normal/No below normal zone lows

December 2011….5.8 F above normal/No below zone lows.
January 2012…4.7 F above normal/No below zone lows.
February 2012….5.2 F above normal/No below zone lows.

Maybe Joe Bastardi posted this on his site...but it's not really correct. He has the habit of trying to overlook the warm months - LOL.
