It's already arrived in the UK thankfully, the flowers think it's spring and with the sun shining in you'd be fooled into thinking Spring had arrived early. But to me it's not proper spring until April 1st, you know the saying ma, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. I will be glad when April arrives because I have my beloved retreat to go to and it signals the end of my SAD which I suffer January to March, I hate the first three months of the year and lets hope we have some much better weather, sending the sun to you and hugs too xxxx

I was just saying the opposite her today , It was really cold and it was pouring rain and sleet bordering on snow , but the daffodils are out and the snowdrops and crocus , we even noticed blossoms on the trees , so I felt today that spring had come xx

Last winter here in Ireland was so mild,there were Lambs born unseasonally early,Duck and other chicks in December,and spring flowers blooming in January...this year seems more conventional with wintry cold January and now March like in the proverb,"Coming in like a Lion..." hopefully going out like a Lamb :)

Spring has long passed for me,and in fact it is just the start of Autumn here. In fact, the Summer that has passed has hardly even been hot for the first time in ages. There were probably more rainy days than sunny days down here in Australia.

I'm with you on this one... Come on Spring!!! At least it was sunny today. Cold, and mountains of snow outside, but at least the sun was shining (still is, at 6:07, thanks to Daylight Savings Time).

Hi Raydene I was beginning to wonder myself, here in the UK in my area we are on severe flood alert and have 80mph winds due along with high spring tides. Apparently we haven't experineced this type of storm since 1981. Only yesterday I was looking at all the daffodils that were already out here and thinking Spring had arrived! Today we are back into Autumn/Winter weather. I hope you don't get too many more power outs. Ellie :D

It had better be nicer as I have bought Niamh a new Easter outfit and I don't want to hide it under a big bulky coat! xxx

I hear your pain but as I live in sunny well sometimes California I cannot say thats it chilly as today was about seventy two and sunny no fog for once but we will have June gloom when its foggy and or cloudy most of the day. The spring is just sort of a continuation of the weather we have most of the time but lately we have had more rain than usual. no ice but we do lose power when we have a santa ana wind that rages up to sixty miles an hour at times. sometimes I long for a bit of change in the weather. I grew up in South Dakota.

The reason why speing seems so far away is because it feels like it has been winter for way too long. I bat the endless winter feeling by temporarily moving to Arizona during the winter months. I live in a nice condo down here with a hot tub, and all kinds of neat stuff!!
