    This weather SUCKS!

    I ****ing HATE the weather right now! WTF happened to winter? WTF happened to Spring? I see that it's been colder than usual all up and down the West Coast, yet here in Austin we hit 100 degrees and will hit 101 tomorrow and 100 the next day. SCREW THAT! I'm sorry but that is not Spring weather... that's the very worst of late August type weather. I am truly terrified to even think of August is going to be like if we're in the 100's in mid April.

    Global warming, El Nino.... whatever you wanna call it. I'm SICK of it! I should be spending hundreds of dollars watering my lawn over the next six months since the spring rains are non-existent this year.

    Screw this... I'm so ready to sell out and move somewhere that never gets hot and always has rain... Seattle? Portland? I'm gonna start looking at grad. schools up there.

    I'm so... ****ing.... sick... of... this....

    I HATE the summer in Central Texas! Every year I hate it more and more... so yeah, every year you see me, that's the worst summer of my life

    Here in NW Ohio it rained last night. Temps on Easter Sunday were in the high 50F range, with some sunshine. On Easter Saturday it was about 75F with abundant sunshine.

    We Great Lakes folks complain a lot about the weather, too. But when we have nice weather, any time of the year, it is a GREAT place to live.

    I've spent every summer of my life in Florida, and every year I think it's the hottest one ever. The older I get, the worse it gets. But never 100 d. in April!

    Speak for yoursel pal. The wife and I had no problem hanging at the beach this past Saturday and Sunday. Clear skies, 90 degrees with low humidity and a slight breeze. Absolutely perfect.

    We have had spring weather for the past three months, now it's time for summer.

    It's been gorgeous here in South Florida all winter and so far this spring- dry, low humidity, and in the mid 60s at night.

    Yes, but Florida gets too humid for me overall. I've been there in June and it was too much to deal with. At least you guys have rainfall on a regular basis. Austin feels like a blast furnace for most of the summer.

    Except for the heavy rain yesterday, the weekend was beuatiful - high 60s/low 70s, breezy, sunny. - great dog playing weather.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    For the past Easter weekend, we had sunny and warm weather. The temperatures were in the mid-teens (Celsius).

    Too bad that my schoolwork kept me indoors from enjoying the splendid weather. And now my classes and continuing schoolwork keep me indoors for the rest of the week, which has great weather in the forecast.

    We should get our springs and falls off and be stuck in classes during the summer so that we can enjoy the free air-conditioning during the hot sticky summer months.

    I'm in Austin, which is about as "Texas" as San Francisco.

    Also, there's no way you could get me to move to somewhere that's actually hotter than this

    San Francisco cancelled its historic Easter Sunrise Service on Mount Davidson because of the torrential rainstorm.

    In Solano County, it's rained almost five inches in April so far. The usual is less than an inch. BUT: today is bright and sunny with puffy clouds. Of course, that means POLLEN, POLLEN; AND MORE POLLEN. My lungs are shutting down at the thought. And, the hills are alive with gigantic jungles of flammable broom and grasses (boy, broom is pretty-bright yellow flowers). The ski resourts still have 300 inches of snow in some locations. Can you say spring flooding? 36 inches of snow last night.

    And, of course, it's the centennial of 1906, so the media doom and gloom is palpable out here.

    We should start a thread "wagering" on where the epicenter will be (or perhaps on the magnitude).

    It was a warm winter with close to no snow. We did get a good amount of rain this year but no snow. This spring has also been cold, but the past few weeks it has been very nice. Saturday it was in the low 80ís and sunny. Today, 20 degrees cooler, but sunny.
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    I spent 18 years saying "This is the last summer I spend in the Washington DC area." Too hot and way too humid. Finally in 1991 we moved to the Oregon coast. Right on the coast it rarely gets above 80 or below 30. A few miles inland you get less moderation from the ocean, so more extreme weather. By extreme I mean summers highs sometimes (not often; a few days a year) over 90, winter lows in the 20s. In the summer you can always head to the beach to cool off.

    Down side: lots of rain (80-100 inches a year right at the coast, much less in Portland) and gray days. Summer weather usually doesn't start until around the 4th of July, and goes through September.

    I never regret, from a weather standpoint, my decision to move here.

    It was 93F yesterday on Easter.....for this lady from the Pacific NW it is on the verge of being sacreligious to be this hot on Easter. It has been uncommonly warm in the Upstate South Carolina region this year. I actually saw a blooming daffodil the last week of January and all the pear and cherry blossoms were gone in a few days time in February. Moving to NJ for grad school in August, I am sure I will be complaining about the cold come winter lol.

    Since I moved to Fort Collins, CO in in the late 80s, I must say that it's the best weather I've experienced. Four seasons, but low humidity. Cool summer mornings and evenings. More than you might think - warm winter days. I've played tennis in a T-Shirt and shorts on many January and February days.

    I love the weather at this time of year... if its really cold I can maybe possibly wear a light jacket! It's so novel for a Queenslander.

    exactly why I could never live anywhere except for the west coast. (or maybe some of the mountainous areas). Anything over 80 degrees and I get grumpy - and very very lazy.

    Welcome!

    Old town sure was nice this weekend, eh?

    We've been getting more summer weather in Northern Colo. this past week than typical spring weather. Nice nice back drop for the revolving door of visitors from North Idaho and North Wyoming that we have been getting. The Rockies game in Denver last firday was nice and toasty, reminiscent of the warm/cool summer night here.

    Time to go out and not grow any grass...
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
