.......... that it can be in the upper 50s and 60s for a couple of weeks and then last night after rain we are today having rain, snow, sun , rain, snow, sun, rain, snow sun, and repeat repeat , repeat ? Enough already we have had winter, now we need spring and a warm spring, with warm nights and sunny days so we can shake this old winter skin and be able to clear our sinuses and begin to live out doors again, or do you guys have this kind of weather where you are? Enjoy life it's a gift and never promised forever. Roger

I drove through snow squals all last night and then 100 miles beyond my destination the hwy was closed at Falcon Lake Manitoba due to snow,,then I had to detour on the way home down a cowtrail of a road to get around a stretch of TransCanada hwy that was closed due to water over the road.  I'm heading out shortly and its snowing lightly which means west of the city will be ugly.  I don't put away the shovel until the end of April,,,the very end.

April showers brings snow plowers!

We are having roller coaster weather in NE. Thunderstorm last night cold weather coming back tomorrow after more thunder storms. I hit the remainder of my snow pile this morning to break it up so that it will melt faster. We get what you get but 2 days later and a little moderated. Good Luck, Rick

The latest I've seen snow in N. Illinois is the middle of April. If you don't like the weather, just wait . . . . .

All we had was rain the last couple days.  It poured down bucketfuls.  They were threatening flash floods.  I know it was at least 3 inches.

It's odd weather for sure. It's been in the upper 60's-70 here. My second mowing today and there were inch long grasshoppers out already and it's not even May. Odd, very odd. Drought in Calif. and Wash. states, I think there will be higher food prices coming up.

We had an almost 80 degree day. 2 weeks of 70s and 50s at night. Today it's in the upper 40s. Has been in the 30s for lows and frost on my truck in the morning.

Although those warm days we had tons of mosquito and ticks. Down at camp I went on a little "hike" with my buddy's 4 year old and other buddy's 6 year old. I had 4 ticks on me and they each had 2.

I kind of welcome this cold to hopefully thin those out a bit
