Although Linda M and I are both in Region 7, our conditions are quite different.  Being in south central KY, I'm in zone 6.  I'm a short distance from Nashville, yet the weather is often quite different. 
We're having a warm week here, but overall winter has been colder than in recent years.  If the temperatures stay warm for a couple more weeks, we can still have an early spring.  It would set us up for another spring like 2007, so, I'm hoping for cold weather. 
When I uncovered my seedlings a few days ago, I found several crosses with seedlings already an inch tall!  It took me by surprise.  The sprouts were in the SDBs, a new breeding program, and I didn't expect such early germination.  One TB cross has begun to sprout, but that's all.

Universal as in global - taken on a global scale,
temperatures are rising. Fast.

But, as Chuck said, that doesn't mean that
everywhere is warmer all the time - there
can be local variations, and the second-order
effects of global warming (such as polar ice melt)
can result in strange weather patterns, not all
of which are warm ones.

Also, keep in mind that weather and climate are
not the same - weather is a local, short-term
phenomenon, and climate is longer-term.

We've had a pretty cold winter here in the
SF bay area too. Even given that, I've still
had a few things bloom - Crimson King on
Valentine's Day, and a few days ago good old
reliable Turkish Topaz.
