Spring (?) Here today......gone tomorrow. Lay out your clothes for the day as follows: Hooded Snowsuit, Heavy parka, winter coat, lined jacket & scarf, vest, Shoes: Snow boots, Rain boots, Leather boots, Loafers, Sneakers, Sandals; socks where applicable. Choose what you need when you leave home, pack the rest, and take it with you!

Yes, spring has finally sprung here! Today it is 67 degrees F, though we still have nights just above freezing, so no vegetable garden just yet. I was able to work in the garden to get up some early weeds.

Oh my Alix, I certainly sympathize with your weather. We had the same storm last week but it was all rain, and alot of people lost power.

We have finally had a week in which it did not go below freezing at night. We had a beautiful March, but in April it got down to 19 for a few nights and killed everything. All of the trees, grapes, pears, lillies, flowers were gone. Alot of it still has not come back and we are not sure if it will.

IT'S SPRING IT'S SPRING IT'S SPRING! I'm soooo excited. I live in northern NJ, where it is currently 70 degrees and sunny. There's also a light breeze to cool things down. I just went for a walk and it's gorgeous out!

Buy gin, tonic and limes!
Fire up the grill!
Get out the deck furniture.
Wear shorts!
