Dandelions in February

For the second straight year, dandelions are coming out in February. While I enjoyed the nice warm weather recently, weeds aren't exactly what I want to see on a mid-February run. I want to run in blowing snow just to do it. Just once this winter. That'll all I ask for. I know you guys in the mid-west, northwest and northeast would gladly change your weather for dandelions, but you'd think differently if you lived in it!
