How's the Weather?

Blossoms cover the trees. Daffodils bloom. Hyacinths scent the air. The neighbor's forsythia is bright yellow. The lilac buds are ready to open and the robins hop around looking for worms. Clumps of crocuses dot nearly every yard in my neighborhood.

I know it's early, but spring has sprung here in the Pacific Northwest.

I hear it's winter some places. How's the weather where you live?

Rain. And when Mr. Personality takes a three hour nap and sleeps until 4pm, that makes for a very unhappy mama! :)

March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb where we live. It's still a bit cold (50 for the high) and intermittently rainy, but within a few weeks it will warm up and the forsythia will wake up. It's beautiful here in the south.

Cold, cold, cold and snowy here today. BRRRRR! -12 this morning but it is bright, and we should have some sunshine later today.

March came in with a huge lion's roar but I think I can hear the lamb tuning up off in the distance. I am sure if we dug into the snow piled at the front of the house we would see daffodils starting to poke up through the cold dark ground. Isn't that amazing? All that life in such a cold dark place. I stand in awe of it each spring. How does Mother Nature do that?

I do have a potted hyacinth on my table just to give me hope and speak to me of the promise of spring. It really does feed my soul at this time of year.

I love that quote.

Excuse me while I get more hot coffee and turn the fireplace on. Keep warm and enjoy your weekend.

Well, it -10C/14F last night, and the ground is covered with snow.

However, I stubbornly (and perhaps naively) cling to the notion that we who endure long winters appreciate spring all the more ... whenever it gets here ... if it ever gets here ... oh heck, can I come for a visit?

Here in Eastern VA spring is trying to get here. Daffodils are popping up. We tend to get the fronts that move out to the Atlantic, so it can be in the upper 60's one day and in the 40's the next. Supposed to be in the 50's this week.

Supposedly it's raining about an hour from here, in my hometown. Supposedly it's raining in the upper state, where MaryKay is. Here, I have the door open, and I should open the windows. It's so wonderful outside, around 70. What's totally sad is that dad is deathly ill (he thinks he has the alien baby in his stomach), the boy has a nasty cold, and I have sciatica to the point that I can't walk! I want to go to the playground, fly a kite, shoot waterguns. No such luck. So, we will just look out the door at the beautiful weather, while the rest of you wish for it! Come on over, Anvilcloud!

Well it's cold in Indiana. Until Sunday that is. Sunday was beautiful! Temps in the high 50's I believe. Wonderful weather. Then... expecting snow on Tuesday. Drat!
