same up here, Tatt. It's 65 or so outside right now. The last of the ice on the deck finally melted.

Today in sunny Queensland it's not so sunny, strong winds and showers and hot. We're in a Cyclone watch where I am with a low pressure system expected to form into a Cyclone some 620 k north east [out at sea] of us. It's a worry that it hasn't moved over the past week because when it forms it could move quickly in any direction.

Wednesday it was 71 and I tilled the flowerbed! Spring fever HAD set in (operative word "had"). Thursday morning, I woke up, LUCKILY, because the electricity was off- because we had gotten 3 inches of snow. Which, as of today, has melted in the 50 degree weather. It's a meteorological roller coaster and I am getting a little bit fiestier than usual...

Have you all checked out the national weather map? The jet stream has dipped WAY down low.

Just to give you hope...my yellow crocus are blooming all over the yard, as well as the blue anenomes in the rock garden, and even a few early daffodils.

Haven't seen the bluebirds or robins yet...when I do, I'll let you know.

I promise, spring will come.

Where there is a will, there's a way Mudbug The river is not far from my place and the Barramundi are on the bite. If there's one good thing about here it's that no matter what the weather one can allways go fishing.

The wind today in Chicagoland has just been incredible. They've been at 30-40 mph and I can't imagine what the gusts are. The temp right now is in the upper 20s, but with the wind, it's quite raw. We've also had blowing snow all day, but not much accumulation, since hardly any of it touches the ground.
