Those of us in the Chicago area would really like that, Ryansgirl. Right now it is 34 but it's a rain, sleet mix that is supposed to be here all day. With all the snow we've had, they are warning about flooding......could this be spring?
Made it through another piece of winter ugliness this weekend and are currently heading into another week of frozen. Even the ice caves up here were shut down for the weekend. Brrrr. I need some warmth! I wonder (and kind of hope) that our summer will be a summer like this winter has truly been a winter.

The first day of SPRING! Hopefully ending the winter that will never end. I still look out the window and see some snow on the ground but it is raining! RAIN, I never thought I'd be so happy to see rain!
To-day is a nice early spring day and should be enjoyed because to-night an Alberta Clipper is coming bring Freezing Rain and Snow. That is according to the Weather Channel but they are usually wrong. OH COME THE SPRING.
Yesterday, day two of "spring", we had white out conditions here in Ottawa. I took a picture with my phone and sent it to my daughter, showing her what she is missing. She sent back a picture a view of the ocean from her home in Panama City, Panama. This weekend, she is at a beach house on an island in the Pacific. I guess my wife and I raised a child to be a hell of a lot smarter than us!
Someone much smarter than me may be able to answer this: has the earth axis tilted more, less, changed?? Has the earth's spin slowed down, sped up?? In the past few years November/December seemed to be..... less harsh and March lately..... stinks!
This weekend 50's. Today 20's. Wednesday, possible Nor'easter (big snow storm).
No I don't think the axis has changed nor have we slowed down. Your lucky you should have been here in Nov. & Dec. and witnessed the prelude to the Harshest coldest winter we have had in 30 years and it ain't done yet . It is now 9:42 a.m. and we are at the high for the day -4c or 25F. Suns shining but it is cold. We are getting hit with the North wind coming right of the Polar cap. Old Boreas musty be laughing his butt off.
