It appears for short periods on sunny afternoons. Then it goes away because it forgot its jacket.

You're preaching to the choir here Kev. So shutup and go practice your snow ice cream survival skills! Nothing sticking here, but that ain't keeping it from coming down hard.

Spring is creeping in here. I grilled some 'burgers and brats on the deck today,. in shirtsleeves. We're getting antsy to plant some veggies.. hard to wait another month.
I may start some seedlings indoors just for the heck of it, even if they don't make it.
C'mon spring!!

I know exactly what you mean. Friday it was 74 degrees here. I worked in the yard in shorts and t-shirt. 24 hours later I am outside looking at the ice build-up on the trees and power lines wondering if the electricity going to go out from the ice storm we are having.
