Have you actually had Spring where you live?  I think we are going to go right from winter to summer here in the NE. The sun is out today and it is going to be in the 60s....Wednesday was a hot, hot, really hot day! 88 degrees! 

What's going on in your neck of the woods????

It is most definitely spring here in MI.  Cold, warm, sun, overcast, rain, snow, sleet, hail .... just a normal April!!! My daffodils are in full bloom and the tulips are budding and the lillies are all up about 6".

Did not have a terrible winter, but I sure am tired of it.  Of course, after a white Christmas and New Year I am always tired of winter!  All of our local creeks are **way** out of their beds and fields are under water (in some places - o LOT!).  But week before last the local newscasters were issuing grass-fire warnings!

Ah spring............

While our winter was warmer than usual we have had more snow in April than we had all winter. And it has been colder than most of the rest of the winter too.

BUT, in Nebraska on average we have cold, snow and blowing snow while the sun is out but the last couple years it has been very warm all winter and then we had no spring. So this year is closer to normal I like the abnormal....lol

The farmers on the other hand complained about the drought and you mark my words if it is wet much longer they will complain about that too...so I came to the conclusion that rain or shine they complain so let them complain about no snow..I liked the California weather for a couple years....lol

But now enough is enough. Our pickup has been packed for over a month and I have made appointments for the internet to be hooked up and a Directv upgrade at the camper and there is no reason not to do it on the..................17th.......and the forcast is calling for snow and the high of 35 and below 0 over nights...so I don't even know if the water will be turned on. So I say enough is enough and it is time to warm up a bit.

Hi!  Well, it is definitely NOT spring in Minnesota!!  It hadn't been real warm here yet, but the snow was melting, and THEN BAM!  Another snowstorm!!!   Some places got 12 or more inches, other places got snow, sleet, ice, you name it!!!  My son goes to college in South Dakota and they got all of the above.  My other son and daughter-in-law had a baby and they couldn't go home from the hospital when they were supposed to because it wasn't safe to drive!  YUCKKKK and there's more on the way!!!  Last year my husband was planting corn right now!!  My only hope is that this means a cooler summer is on the way.  When it gets really warm very early in the spring then we have hot summers.  All I see outside is white.  What month is it again?
