Spring has Sprung!
« on: March 10, 2007, 11:39:44 AM »
I walked out the door at 7:50 am and immediately noticed it - the smell of Spring! I love it when you draw that first fresh breath of spring.  I'm so happy!

That first deep breath of spring around here is full of blowing dust.

Well, Jerry, your wet-blanket reply seems to have brought a Nor'easter to New England.  Yea, that's it, it's all your fault I can't play in my garden today (or tomorrow, probably not until next week at this point!)  :evil:

Poor baby.  :-D Yep I'm in cahoots with the weather man. I did it. It was me.  :evil:
We did have our blowing dust days, and I believe Cindi must have sent us some of her rain. It rained for three days. We sure need the water so can't complain. But my place gets muddy. (TGF4WD)

It's Autumn (Fall) over here in Oz...and in northern Australia it's the tail end of our wet season....who's complaining about 3 days of rain??????  We just finished up 3 months of it....you have got to see my lawns!!!  We don't really get a shift in temperature for seasons in northern Australia, just a dry season (Fall - Winter) @ about 34 degrees celcius and 70% humidity during the day and a wet season (Spring - Summer) @ about 34 degrees celcius and 90% humidity.

But spring is still my favourite time of year also reinbeau, there is just something in the air!  Have a great day, enjoy your Spring!!  Regards Brydie

No snow here Mici!  It would look pretty cool on the palm trees tho  :)

mmmm snow AND lightning?  I reckon you're in for some wild weather.  We get really big storms here in the lead up to the wet season, cracker lightning shows (especially cool when it's over a burning sugar cane field) and thunder that shakes the house and sends the dog running to her mummy (me)  :-D

Hey I have seen snow once, I lived in America for about 4 months when I was younger (much younger :)).  I lived in Green River Wyoming and was lucky enough to have a white Christmas and all.  Very special for me coming from the tropics!  I must say though I absolutely froze!  I have never felt anything so cold in all my life!  It was heaps of fun thowing snowballs and building snowmen etc (especially for a 4 year old kid!!)

Well, enjoy your snow, while I sit back and watch the waterfall down the side of the "Pyramid" (a huge mountain at the back of my place 900 metres high), 'cause it just WON'T STOP RAINING!!!!! :shock:

Well, it won't stop snowing here.  Actually, it did stop on Saturday, after three inches of rain on seven inches of snow, so we've got a lovely crust out there, and it's snowing AGAIN!!!  March is always like this around here  :roll:

But at 8:07 pm tomorrow night (Eastern DST) spring will have officially sprung!   And soon we'll have this:
