Oh!

You no like winter? It should be the last gasp of winter though.

You're in the middle of Ohio, this should definitely be the last gasp.

Thank the groundhog for this one. We're suppose to get some snow tonight too. No big deal, I'm hoping we get hit hard so I can stay home tomorrow, although usually nothing shuts down until we get 8 feet.;)

It's been a crappy winter here -- an ice storm produced 3/4" with no damage (fortunately). Other than that, no real snow to speak of. Bums me out, I like snow.
Forecast does call for some rain/snow mix Tuesday.

Winter

I like winter when there is something to do with it. Here for the most part we get the misery without the fun. I have to admit, thought, as I get older I more and more look forward to spring. My garden beckons.

I don't know if its necessarily an age-related thing but this is the time of year where I start to go nuts. Real spring (in southern Michigan) doesn't really start for another 3-4 weeks. In the meantime we a get a tantalizing day or two of 50 degree (f) weather followed by a couple inches of snow, then more sun followed by more snow.....in my zone last frost date is mid May, so really we can't start planting even frost hardy plants until mid April.
Is it a guy thing that wives tend to be interested in planting flowers and husbands in planting vegetables? I know its true in my house.

In AZ winter can't last long enough. Current forecast has high 80's and low 90's. In our 7 day forecast we have 96 for Sunday the 21st. 8-!

OF COURSE, I just put my snow boots away yesterday!

Therefore it must be my fault we're supposed to get 6+" of snow tomorrow... :-\

Mud Princess - I thought you'd know by now: Don't ever put the snow boots away until you are safely into the month of May! ;)

Storms like this are why I also leave snow tires on the cars until April.

snow

During one of the years I spent in Maine, we had a foot of snow in mid April. Not funny.

Our weather (Northern California) has been quite weird. Winter was somewhat rainy in spurts, with dry spells. About two weeks ago, Winter just seemed to end. Its almost freaky warm here, lately. Low 80s, with little nightime cooling. I wish it was just a little cooler, so it would stay green longer. Our hills are already looking a little tired.

When I graduated Ball State in '89, it snowed at commencement on May 5th! Enough snow that it was piling up on people's mortar boards -- and would eventually slide down their backs causing a sudden jump :-c It was quite fun.

Well, I lived in Caribou which is cold even by Maineiac standards.

This time of year is when the weather is real nice around here. Except for the rain every week.

Saturday, there were people swimming and jet skiing in the gulf. I was wearing a t-shirt and shorts in the St. Patrick's parade (I might show some pics after I proof them first B-) )
