    It's early AM and I am up at the computer. I'm listening to the newly returned robins singing in the trees as the sun rises. When I go outside I see my daffodils and tulips coming up from the ground. There is a warm(ish) breeze most days anymore and I am so looking forward to Spring.

    What have you all been seeing that lets you know the winter is gone and Spring is on it's way?

    One day it's 28, the next day it's 60. Yesterday, it started out reasonably warm, cooled off quickly, snowed like crazy, got warm again and all the snow melted, snowed some more...back and forth. This morning, no snow, but its 19.

    THAT'S how I know it's springtime in Western NY. March always has nutty weather.

    My sister in law sent me a picture of their backyard outside of Anchorage. The picknic table is fully covered in snow. I sent this picture saying I'll get to enjoy spring twice this year, once diwn here and again when we are in Alaska in June.

    You Midwest types must be 3 weeks ahead of us Upper Midwest types. If I lived 100-200 miles further south I'd gain 3 weeks of mild weather on the front half and about 3 weeks on the back half. 6 weeks of a little nicer weather...sounds (almost ) worth it.

    Up until the beginning of this week the temperatures in Las Vegas hovered around the 50º to 60º mark. The "futurecast" for the next week is in the mid 70º ranges with a minor slip back to the mid to upper 60º range next weekend. I don't discount any more cold weather (we HAVE had early May snow storms uprange) but I think the cold temperatures are soon to go the way of the Dodo. Spring? Las Vegas has about a week of it and then summer arrives (along with the high temperatures I like).

    I prefer 45ºC over 45ºF any day.....

    Didn't have much of a winter here, things are in bloom early and soon everything will be covered in pollen, perfect excuse not to wash the car!

    I saw my first robin last week here. But I hear them singing in the trees at 0500. It's awesome.

    Down hear, the robins stay year round, or atleast some. About a month ago I was grilling dinner and watch thousands fly by. Never seen so many. Anybody have mockingbirds? They have the prettiest song to me.

    Put down 3 inches of snow here Tuesday night. Today is supposed to get up to 60 and the tulips are sprouting.

    Don't like the weather in Utah? Wait 5 minutes. :D

    We didn't have much of a winter in NC this year compared to usual. The daffodils have been up for weeks and our weeping cherries are already blossoming. It is a month too early for that. At least I don't have allergies.
