Default SPRING!!!!

Happy first day of Spring....

We need some good weather here, that's for sure

It will soon be hot and wonderful
I love the hot weather So much to do, instead of sitting in the house and whining. 8) 8)

Yes, it's spring! Doesn't it seem odd that we have a cold front move through every year at this time? Had to wear a jacket today! Can't wait to wear dresses and NO stockings!

BTW, great picture, CQ!

Y'all might hit me, but it is supposed to be 68 here in western Kentucky tomorrow. and in the 50s for the weekend. Maybe the snow forcast for the rest of you won't happen.
I am so ready for spring and to be able to open the windows and get rid of these high heating bills. That way I can save the money for another cruise!

Well you guys do what you want up there. But I have not used AC or heat since October and won't until May. My electric bill for two story house of 2500SF was $67 last month.

Just a nasty week here

Sounds like a lot of fun. Just be careful when water skiing and don't run over the Easter bunny! Wonder if he will be wearing a speedo?

Here at my little farm in Western North Carolina, it is definately Spring! I have daffodils in full bloom, little birdfoot wild violets are coming up in a few places, robins are singing all day long, the 100 year old red maples in the front yard are budded out and the mountains are getting that first blush of green on them. This is why I prefer to be here each Spring rather than at my other home in FL......much more interesting.

Especially, NO cutting and pasting of 5 day forcasts, that is forbidden, because most of us said so:):):)

My oak trees are filled out with new leaves and the azaleas are in full bloom. it is great sleeping with the windows open all winter.

You guys don't have it so bad up there. Get to make snowmen, have snowball fights, go sledding, dig your cars out, shovel your sidewalks, wear all those nice clothes. I am tired of wearing my swim shorts and flip flops everyday. It gets old after a while!

Dave, I'd like to tell you where to put those flip flops, but I don't want to get booted off.
I'd trade my snowboots for flip flops any day......

Had to dig out the hip waders ! Just remember those who enjoy nice weather usually get a wake-up call from Mother Nature!
