Is it January?

Its the time of year now where we venture into the muddy and/or frozen vineyards and prune the vines back to a mere trunk with arms.  Getting rid of 2008's growth gives us the ability to train the vine to get optimal fruit sun exposure, placement, and ultimately- quality in 2009.  Ok, so why is it 70 degrees and full sun out here?  I heard rumors that people saw buds pushing, a sign that the vines think it is Spring.    Spring in January?
