Thanks GG. Yup, sure looks like Spring has sprung. Love the daffodils, or they narcissus?

They're daffodils. I love watching them bobbing in the breeze

Baa. Baa.

GG, those daffs sure are a breath of spring, aren't they?

Taxy, hope you guys don't have any problems with the weather you're getting. My SIL picked a great time to tag along with her hubby - he's up in Montreal on business for the next couple of days.

Our March definitely came in like a lamb. Coolish, in the upper 30s, and milky sun. But right before midnight we heard the lion. Icy pellets were hitting the windows, but with climbing temperatures we now have a steady rain. By the time we venture out from under our covers, it should be sunny.

The blizzard was mostly over by the time I got up (slept in to 13h). Still have the gusting winds and blowing snow.

We had wicked high winds here early this afternoon. Then they got REALLY bad - or so I thought. I went into the sun room and looked up to check all the tree tops, and suddenly, loud, proud, and what looked like too close to ground (but it wasn't), THIS popped into view as it passed my roof line:



It was close enough so I could pick out the tail fins clearly. Himself said it was probably either an F-18 or an F-15. All I know it was really FAST!

I guess he scared the wind as much as he scared me. It's settled down in the last few hours. Still have a headache from it, though...or maybe that's from the neighbor's dogs being out for an hour at a time and barking. Grrr....

36 and calm this morning!

Warm temps this week, 50's and 60's!

Warm temps during the day and nights above freezing may make it a short maple syrup season in my area this year, everything has a price!

37°F, a little cloudy, no wind...should get up into the high 60's today. I'll probably sleep right through it.

We had an awesome, fast moving, thunder and rain storm this morning. It woke me up at 5 this morning. A few trees were hit by lightening as well.
