17C (63F), definitely springlike here. It's such a relief after that winter. I have daffodil leaves poking up as well as either day lily or iris leaves. There are also chives and parsley peeking out. This is all just stuff that keeps coming back.

What is your weather like right now?

An unseasonably warm 82F today here along the river. Next week we're supposed to go back to reality and 50s. I've been using my lovely chives on everything!

Temperature has been comfortable and the last few days have been rainy. I'm grateful for the rain, but wish I could send some out west.

It really is so nice to hear that those of you in the Midwest, the east coast, and parts of Canada are finally getting some spring weather.

It's been nice here, a high of 80F today, but we had some gnarly winds the past couple of days. Several large trees blew over in my neighborhood and did some property damage, and the power went out a few times. But it looks like all is well now, nobody was hurt.

Got up to 82F here again along the river, and cloudy. Still awaiting the rain.

It's 5C (41F) was all the way up to 9C and going down to 0C (32F). The 90% probability of precipitation with thunder storms, was the sky spitting a little, not enough to get the ground more than spotted.

It is sunny today and the temp has climbed up to 52F. I have a lot to do in the house. But I am tempted to go outside for a while and enjoy the weather.

I just got back from shopping with my daughter. I almost didn't want to even go into the stores.

rain again today, but it's made everything so beautiful and green in a relatively short time.
