Depends on the party. Had an hour long philosophical discussion about Bugs Bunny one time that was quite intense.
But there's a distinct difference from your imaginary horse and scientific facts of the seasons. Just keeping it real.

Yeah. Rain and 40 degree temps have gotten old. We've got feet of snow - NEW snow - in the passes today. A friend of mine posted a pic that showed 37 degrees out at 7am.

It bites, and I'm very tired of it.

It was pushing close to 100* here last week, and as I type this at 11:31am, it's 78* outside with lots of wind. That's how I know it's spring here...lots of wind. My 1.5 year old trees are taking a beating right now, but they're hanging in there.

Tell me about it.

Planning to take the boat out this weekend to break in the rebuilt powerhead and I have heard reports of ice still out on the lake.

Grrr...

Didn't I beat you up in High School enough?

Please make an appointment with my executive secretary who will fly you here on one of my jets to reinforce the "lesson".

Sorry, no beatings from you, or anybody else for that matter. I fit very well in both the jock groups, and the nerd groups. But I'd be happy to provide you with a few more lessons if you need them.
