Where is Spring?

So we've had "Spring" for two days now and it's still snowing ...  I can't even start to think about veggies for the garden, cause it's not supposed to get much above freezing for me to even see the ground in the garden.  Anyone know where Spring is hiding?

Elaine, our sheep are usually outside in the Winter, even in storms and you sometimes can't find them until they stand up.  All you see are lumps in the snow with maybe a nose sticking out.  I've never lost one to the snow yet (knock on wood).

The temperatures went up and then down again but are supposed to go back up towards the weekend.  Hopefully it's going to stay up for a bit longer now.  DD #4 keeps asking when the warmer weather is coming and she can go into the pool ...

I hope the temperatures have continued to rise Brigitte.  I have seen scenes from the UK where farmers have had to dig their sheep out of the snow, they would be the lucky ones I guess, goodness knows how many didn't make it.Cry

We have had very warm temperatures here for this time of the year, we are not complaining, it hasn't been heatwave conditions, but the nights are cooling down quite a bit now, we had a couple of 4C overnight temps during the week.

Jen, the temperatures are finally above freezing and stuff is turning muddy right now, but it's still taking a while before all the snow is gone. Was talking to my Mom in Germany today and she said that the crocus are starting to come through the snow over there. Quite different from when I was there and the flowers were starting to bloom with only a dusting on the ground that was usually gone by noon.

It's not here.  We got snow overnight, and spring break for the kids started on Friday!  :(
