(WZZM) - It has been a mild winter so far and you may have noticed many buds thickening up appearing to be ready for spring. Many people want to know if it will cause problems later this year in the spring and summer.

If it gets real cold now it could cause problems for our Hydrangeas, if they've gone too far past dormancy it could kill some of the blooms or flowers that are supposed to come this Spring.

Rick also says we will have less snow mold and less voles doing damage to our yards because they have no snow cover to hide beneath.
