Also, as you go north and west in New Jersey you get away from the
moderating influence of the Atlantic Ocean and also go up in elevation,
leading to a complete change in a USDA Zone.

I travel weekly between New York City and northwest Connecticut, a distance
of about 90 miles.  Casual observations over the years leads me to
that every 10 miles north means a day's difference in the early spring
season, that is, NYC is 9 to 10 days ahead of us.  Snowdrops started to
last week, daffodils in warmer parts of the garden are only just pushing
through the soil surface.  Looking forward to see if any of the high
Kniphofias survived as well as a  planting of Eucomis autumnalis ssp.
