Glad to hear a reasoned response like this from a respected professional.  
I'm still smarting from being told last year that I was an old fuddy-duddy and 
resistant to change for not accepting that we had been "promoted" from zone 5 
to zone 7 here.  Last winter should have put all such quibbles to rest.  So we 
have had warmer than usual winters for the last ten years - that doesn't mean 
it will always be that way.
