Winter Here Is Gone Finally
by James Denison - 4/10/13 12:09 PM
Last week we were in the 40-60's with a hat tip to the 70's. Today we hit 90 degrees! Happy days are here again in Maryland, LOL. Well, except for my wife from the far north, heh heh.

In Wales, struggling to get 8 degrees.
As a kid, I thought they were called "For Cynthia bushes". I told my wife that means only three more snows to go. She didn't give me a happy look.
last week here in 40's & 50's for highs
yesterday 84, today 88.
Nice weather actually, but such a big jump so quickly makes it hard to adjust.
I actually like 65 over 85 if I'm working outside, but oh well. Was digging up boxwood bushes yesterday, some not too good a shape, the other just casualities of rearranging. Need to be out there today, but other things to do earlier, and then just not into it.
We're suppose to be back down to 70 Sat, but back to 80 next week. I would have liked a few weeks of 70 highs instead of going from 50 to 88.
Baltimore just hit 93
here at 6pm
(NT) all that concrete on a sunny day
Decent weather condition
I agree to you it becomes pretty difficult to adjust ourselves in weather like this, but I'm enjoying it also too much.
I can tell when spring is upon us here when the robins come back. Sure everyone knows that, but at my home I await the chirping of frogs, which says its warm enough. Next, is the arrival any bugs that may have been harboring in the woodwork or siding. Then, the final straw it rains too much or it seems to me and the lawn just can't take to drain away that fast. Of course, if the weather gets real drastic, the storms arrive to include high winds or severe weather of some sort. Then roughly around late April or May it settles. My Easter lilies are about to bloom. they're only green now but I think they're 2wks late or so. ------Willy
plants around here have jumped in last 5 days
My mother and sister were talking about several plants including their hostas last week and none were sprouting. Mother asked me about the ones here and there wasn't even any real crowning yet.
Now they're all up, out, about 3 inches long and starting to unfurl.
It was a bit cooler than normal around here until last Friday, since then it's been about 10 above average and a lot of stuff is just exploding, not just plants, but also regular ants, fire ants, wasps and ground bees.
Spring is indicated here by the honking of geese. It didn't
used to be that way, but it has been for the last 10 years where I live. I had a Robin going crazy outside my window at 3:50 yesterday morning. It was pitch black, and this loon was singing for all he was worth. It was almost annoying. Still these traditional harbingers of spring do raise the spirits. Now for some Forsythia and Lilacs though probably not until May 1 judging by the delays this year.
Finally, a warm day

It was slightly frosted out this morning. Then later it's nice and warm which makes this week far better than last week, pretty much the same. as for the birds, they're pretty active and the frogs are crock all night at times it seems. I have tree frogs that are little brats that seem to give no clue to their size as they sound large but aren't bigger than a nickel. Anyways, its getting nice to hear the birds in the morning. -----Willy
(NT) Not here -70s on Friday, snow on Saturday
other week it was 85, last night, about 40
and 60 for a high the last few days, and damp.
May dip into the 30's tonight, then a bit of up and down this week, but nothing really warm.
Looked beautiful today, but was a bit below 60 and a too brisk and chilly wind all day.
Snow flurries this morning in central Ohio
Frost on the grass and a little of the white stuff but nothing threatening. The rule of three snows after the forsythias bloom still needs two more to hold true.
(NT) 38 morning, 55 and drizzling this afternoon, yuk
yes, cooled back down some
In the 40's this morning. That one day at 90 degrees was wonderful though. This week is supposed to be highs between 62-72 here. Slowly getting things set up for the garden. Already tilled, but need to lay drip lines and black plastic to start warming the soil up.
You're lucky, James. I'm still waiting. Damn it's
frustrating. I want to go walking and do some exercise, and all I can do is walk laps in my Apartment building, not that that is poor quality exercise,along the hall to the back stairs up a floor along the hall way up the front stairs and along a hall way, and down the back stairs and along the hall way for a total of 4 floors. Great for the legs, and maybe the cardio, but lousy for the upper body and boring.
Glad you've got good weather. Have a good spring and summer.
That's the hardest part in spring, getting all the winter cramps out of the legs, and my bad back.
