My Front Lawn: Meridian, Idaho, 4/9/08

Now I'm not one to say that one data point is proof that man-made global warming doesn't exist, just the same way I don't say that one year of bad hurricanes is proof that it does. All I'm saying is that I'm really, really ready for winter to be over. Luckily for us, we're supposed to have highs in the 70s this weekend.

We've had a week of mid-60s in Champaign, IL, and it's going to be 45 on Saturday with possible snow showers overnight. Just in time for our annual Spring Parade. Uniform of the day? Summer whites. For camouflage.

It is predicted to be in the mid 90's this weekend in PHX. It's been in the 70's for a while now.

I hope it makes it into the 70's this weekend in Bangor. It feels like I haven't seen the 70's since I left HI.

We had six inches of wet heavy glop two weeks ago, just as the normal winter snow had all but disappeared. Now that that snow has melted away they're predicting three to nine inches over the next two days.

At least my snow blower is by the garage door and ready to go. I was ready for winter to be over a month ago. This is damn tiresome

It's in the low 80s down here in Augusta, where the weather and the spring flowers are all on display for the Masters Tournament. Visit anytime!

Yes, because lord knows it's so much better to be hot than to be cold. There's only so much you can wear to get warm, but take it all off and you're always cool as an ice cube, no matter how hot it gets. Not to mention all the hours of yard work I can't wait to get back into. Weeding, pruining, mowing, edging... I totally agree - Winter sucks; bring on the 110F days and my Bermuda shorts!

Here in New England, we usually get about another month and a half of winter. Then, 2 or 3 weeks after that we go right to summer.

No matter how much I explain it my wife, things look dead here from the end of October to the middle of May, almost seven months.

My wife likes it, but I hate the cold. Too many years in Holy Loch/New England when I was in the Navy, and then getting spoiled in Kings Bay. Like the last anony said, it's easier to get cool than to get warm.

So why do I live in New England you may ask? BECAUSE I TOLD MY WIFE WE COULD LIVE ANYWHERE SHE WANTED WHEN I GOT OUT.

i am so f***ing stupid...

And sometimes when I get bored I like to pretend to shovel snow...

I know what you mean. It is 32 degrees and rain/snow in Malcolm, Ne. Should it not be time for a real "spring"

Railroad Dude -- I'm sure it'll be spring soon. Forecast says you guys are supposed to be in the 70s by the middle of next week.

Greetings! I'm hoping that the late season coolness means that I actually have a little extra time to plant my garden! Still, out NC way, the bugs are getting a good start on stuff and lawnburr is going nuts. =o(
