    Default Early Spring Or No Winter

    Well, its looking like all the signs for the coming of spring are here. Two weeks ago my wife, and I saw what seemed to be about 100 robins in the backyard. They stayed around for about 3 days. Although some stuck around. Next thing was Geese, I've seen flock after flock flying north. PA didn't really have much of a winter this year at all. We had one real snowfall, and a couple of cold days. I'm wondering if we will ever see those storms, that I remember as a kid. Before we know it the FEL will be off, and the MMM will be on.

    Yeah...bought a back blade for plowing...used it twice for snows that didn't really require plowing...good practice though.
    It's a given that if one obtains a tool, implement, what have you, for snow removal...that there will be no need for that tool for at least a year.
    Sorta like a variation of Murphy's Law...

    And my apricot and plum trees have budded. 70 degrees outside with a forecast for the 20s Tuesday night. I may not have any plums this year.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    I can imagine stuff is trying to grow. We have seen a lot of new green in PA too. Sorry about the plums though, I like them.

    Steelfan,

    I'd say it was both....no winter and early spring. Felt like a beautiful spring day in upstate NY today almost so that I wanted to go out and do spring clean-up. But, I'm still trying to kick a bout with the flu and my wife put a stop to that. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Sorry to hear a about you bout with the flu. I was outside with my tractor today digging, and scraping around. Man it was great. I just can't get it out of my mind that spring isn't here yet. Did a lot of my cleanup today, but I could be sorry if we get a storm in March like we did quite a few years. I hope you feel better. Kent

    Don't know what you're talking about SF [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    We had 60 degrees today. Got to ride my bike outside for a change, which is always a treat. Tomorrow we're supposed to be in for a major change though. Temps falling intot he single digits with predictions for heavy lake effect snows over the next several days. And here we are getting ready to pour basement walls tomorrow [img]/w3tcompact/icons/eyes.gif[/img]

    The daffodils that are coming up are surely in for a shock [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
