There are often runs of short winters or dry summers which seem to 
indicate a change in climate. However the weather has to be monitored over 
20 years before a significant change in climate can be confirmed.
So the answer is nobody really knows for sur if your winters are getting 
shorter or if it is only a short term variation.
