We've had a near perfect Spring here in SE Wisconsin. Some days high of 70 some days high 50. Plenty of rain but not too much. Lawn is bright green, cutting it once a week since early April.

If I was in decent physical condition our 68 vert would be getting a work out!

It's been a cold and rainy spring here in Maine. It should be in the 70s and I still have the furnace on. This week is supposed to be a lo better, but it's been crap to this point.

It was in the 90's here last week. We went straight to summer.

I keep noticing the DOT puts up signs to honor my burnouts. That's nice of them.

It's been one of the nicest springs I can remember around here (aside from the damn hail storm). Enough rain to get us out of the drought, but a lot of it has been in the late evenings and night so we've had a lot of really nice days. Temps have even been around 75-80, which is probably a bit low, but in a good way.

We had a bad drought last year (the springs rains were lacking and it flat out didnt rain all summer) so my yard was toast. With some heavy seeding and fertilzer and all the rain we've had, it's about 95% back to where it was 2 years ago.

Here in Oregon, we got 3 days of Spring last week. First 80 degree day of the year. Now we're back in the 40's - 50's and rain. Ah, that was a great Spring. Can't wait till next year.

Spring has been here (northern hemisphere) since the Vernal Equinox on March 20, just like every year before. It will be here til Jun 21 when the Summer Solstice will take us into summer. The seasons have no bearing on the weather, only on the astronomical location of the sun. So, unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere, you are enjoying Spring.

It's in the upper 80s. It's been in the 70s since February. My kids have already been drug behind the boat.

I bet you're a blast at parties.

Guest: So a horse walks into a bar...
DrHawkeye: That premise is unreasonable. Barring an extremely abnormal event like a stampede a horse would prefer not to go into such a small opening and a bar doorway. And in the event of a stampede, the horse would be running, not walking.

I've only seen a few of those episodes. But I'm an astronomy geek from way back.

Depending on your point of view, the Sun can go around the Earth.
And the Santa myth is just that, bogus.
