Where's My Global Warming?

From November 16, 2014 Idaho Statesman:

We're only midway through November, and winter weather records in Boise are falling left and right.
Temperatures at the Boise Airport bottomed out at 6 degrees Monday morning, breaking a 134-year-old record of 7 degrees set on Nov. 17, 1880.

Sunday was a record-breaker, too. The 4-degree low broke the previous record for that date of 5 degrees, set in 1955.

Tuesday morning also could set another record by breaking the 7-degree low set in 1985. As of 8 p.m. Monday, however, the forecast called for an overnight low of 8 degrees.
And it isn't just Idaho.  From 11/17/14 Washington Post:
A strong cold front is pushing through the contiguous U.S. early this week, bringing a blast of snow for many, and an Arctic chill for most. Over 50 percent of the Lower 48 is covered in snow on Monday morning, the most this early in the year in at least a decade.

After a series of powerful early-November winter storms, snow extends as far south as West Texas on Monday morning, according to NOAA’s National Snow Analysis. The Texas Panhandle is covered by up to four inches of snow, and a trace to two inches coats areas further south, including Dallas and Ft. Worth, as well as Lubbock, Abilene, and Odessa.
