    Hoping For An Early Spring

    Until looking out the window this morning:

    At least the weather sites let me know it was going to be cold so any of the early risers in the flower beds were covered with hay.

    Same wish here. Was in the 60s end of the week; dropped to the 30s for Saturday's snow, is 41F right now on Sunday afternoon and will be in the 70s Wed and Thursday of this week. Crazy weather. And that darn groundhog didn't help...

    We had an early spring - followed by an early summer followed by what is now an early autumn. I was looking forward to ripe tomatoes but we seem to be heading for green tomato pickles again... Cheers

    I have tons of flowers peaking up already and my lilacs are showing signs of life. If we get another cold snap they are all going to get their noses nipped yet again.....

    Around here we had 60's then the next day 6 inches of snow.

    Our normal high is about 40 degrees but we have been having a roller coaster of high temps these past ten days. Had days in the 60's followed by snow the next, and warm again the day after that. Expecting highs of 70 today and tomorrow, a drop to normal and then 50's and 60's for the weekend. Last time we had such a wacko weather spell, we had a last blizzard and lost a bunch of new born lambs in late March.

    Spring has arrived in Galveston County Texas.
    I just completed my morning walk in shirt short shirt sleeves. It is a 72 degree, overcast day. I walked .92 miles, 2,165 steps in 22 minutes.

    Hey, you old dogs, if you re not walking, see this site.

    75 here at the moment, sunny, getting warmer by the hour. Unseasonably warm, tee shirt weather. Flower blooming everywhere, buds on the blueberries and many of the trees. Grass is growing like crazy after all the rain.

    I do remember snow here in May so I won't be surprised if it gets cold again.

    It is snowing again here. The forecast is for as much as 3" in some areas.

    We did hit the 70F mark here today...and expect slightly higher tomorrow. Both days may be records for February.

    We finally hit Winter here. Yesterday blowing 35 mph off the ocean and a high of 59. Today it was 38 degrees at our house. Thats about as low as I have ever seen here. Our thin California blood is ill-prepared for this. I moved from the midwest to avoid this when I was young.

    Heck were not even to the "Hoping" stage yet. Had 5 inches of snow last night on top of the 8-10 we already had on the ground. Down to minus 5 tonight and tomorrow with 3 more inches of snow on Thursday. But it's nice to hear all your stories.
