The Nice Spring Weather

United States
March 11, 2007 9:39am CST
Well it looks like for the first time in a long time that Punxsutawney Phil is right. I am in NE Ohio in the snowbelt,where we usually get dumped on by snow. This year he said spring would come early. I am sooo glad he is right this year. This weekend we have spring weather. This week the weatherman says we are going to be in the 60's and i can't wait! Spring is here and hopefully will be sticking around and getting warmer and no more snow. Hopefully it will be nice for my birthday the end of the month. What is the weather like in your town?

We have Wiarton Willy up here in Ontario, Canada and he predicted the same thing as Phil this year. We are also having a beautiful weekend and the snow is melllllting and the sun is shining! Yay! I may get out and go for a walk this morning and enjoy the sun while it's out. I hope this is it and winter's nearly done with. I'm tired of it! :)

It nice here too sadly I have a terrible hang over and so does my boyfriend so we're not enjoying it like we should be. It's going to get colder again tomorrow too so I'll probably end up having to walk around in the freezing cold . :(

Yes, the spring is coming! There in Tallinn the snow is almost gone but in the countryside it's still enough of it to have a ski competition tomorrow. The sun was shining today. Now is 18:35 our time, and we still have +3 deg C outside (should be 39 deg F)!

It's been warm. But I just moved here last summer. We had a TON of snow and everyone was telling me that it;s been a BAD winter here - it was no different than where I am from. But it's sunny during the day and really warm. At night when the sun goes down, it gets really cold. BUt to me it's been a mild winter, even though everyone says it was a bad one.

It has been beautiful here in Texas!! In the 70's, perfect for playing outside with the kids!! WE play outside in the mornings/afternoon (if it isn't too hot) and at night, I love it!! My kids are so much happier being outside rather than stuck inside the house all day!!

I'm in South Georgia and the last few days have been so beautiful. I have actually started some of my spring planting. It has been in the lower to mid 70's here. I actually got a little sun yesterday while working in my flower beds.

Am in middle of Northern Ohio so the nicer weather is great I agree. We sure have had some funny weather. Remember Christmas that sure was a warm one. You seem to be in the snow belt? Will be interesting to see what others say about their areas. Been busy getting outside things done now that we can, though now we have mud month. lol

we got alot of mud up here too. Of course it rained most the morning yesterday. I know no snow i think till january and a warm christmas that was sooo weird. We were running around at thanksgiving with just sweaters on and no jackets or coats. Ohio weather has been strange this year.

It was in the mid 70's today and sunny, a very beautiful day. I think you are right. Spring has come. I'm kind of sad because I actually like winter. I love snow. We didn't get but a light dusting a couple of times this year. We haven't got a real good snowfall in a long time.

The weather today was very nice. It's great to have the snow melted and the warm sun coming out. I love Spring time and I'm so glad it's heading our way!

Hey yvonne, I am in Warrensville heights and when it reached 56 on Friday, after work , my fiancee and I went to Lake Erie for some great pictures of the ice melting way out past the shoreline. Close-ups of jagged edges and individual snow crystals pressed into sheets bunched up around rocks, branches, fallen limbs and the sand. But it was not blistery cold, in fact I was wearing only three layers of clothing tops a thermal, turtleneck and pullover, leggings, jeans, no snow pants, boots but no coat, it was that comfortable. Punxsutawney Phil is as good as reading the Farmer's Almanac, both pretty accurate these days.

I live about 50 miles outside of Chicago and we have had the worst winter I can remember. February was so cold and we had lots and lots of snow. So spring coming is so great. This weekend it is in the 50s and sunny. I just love it.

It is nice today but it will get cold again and snow by next week. No ground hog can predict no snow or winter in areas where there is winter. It is a cute little myth but that is all it is. Now in more southern states where weather is milder, I am sure he works quite well.

Right now, I have my front door and windows open. It is spring weather here definitely. The weatherman said that it is supposed to be getting up to 85 degrees here, and staying that way through most of the week. Time to get the pool cleaned out! (Maybe! LOL)

It was in the 70's today. I went for a long walk. I was happy to turn my heater off. I am just loving the great weather.
