We have had a horrible winter, and from the looks of things, it is nowhere near being over.

another 4-6 inches of snow expected?  Come on!

My tulips haven't even bloomed yet.

There are barely any trees that are even beginning to show signs of life in them.  What a depressing spring!

Now Jim,  that is just plain cruel.  I didn't have the heart to tell Scott.  

OK Scott, so now that the cat is out of the bag, listen to that little voice in your ear, it is saying "move south, move south."

Scott, I confess that spring is down here with us.  We got it right after So. Florida, but have committed to send it to So Cal next.  I think Bobby in NY is next in line.  Perhaps he could send it your way after that.

It's been near summer-like here for the last two weeks.  For once, I'd like it to be a tad cooler.

Spring is arriving with a vengeance this week-end (temps in the mid-/upper-80s F).  For a limited time only.  Don't blink.

Sorry to hear that, it starts in Feb here (forget about the March 21st calendar stuff) after a quick winter.  You should move south if all possible.  Seriously.

As I have stated to several people...

You know for a few of the last few years we have had an Indian Winter here, like a reverse of Indian Summer.  Warm Marchs and cool Aprils.   Kind of strange, but while I don't like the cold, I don't much care for the mid 90s either.
