What happened to winter?

For me, winter is a day where the high temperature fails to reach 70 degrees Fahrenheit. For my ash tree in the back yard, I assume that means losing its leaves. After all, it is a deciduous tree.

But for the second year in a row, it has started to bud before all of last years leaves have dropped. The little black balls on the branches are this years’ buds.
