If I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself and saved more money

Spring is here in sunny Southern Utah. Breezy and 81(deg). Which makes me cringe wondering what June and July will be like.

Some of us are already South. Unfortunately, the working stiffs at best may get away for a week or so.

In the SE, we have had one of the best winters ever. Spring like weather on the bad days I love this global warming.

Unfortunately, like Dugald, we have to head North at end of month. Then we might have some good days in April & May, but seldom any real Spring weather until June Nevertheless, always good to get back home.

Here in the NE, we had a taste of spring last month when all the snow from previous storms had disappeared. Unfortunately, a false sense of security! Now we still have about 10-12" on the ground after receiving 24" last week.

It seems every year at this time there's this battle between spring's fight for arrival and winter's reluctance to depart, and we may not be out of the woods yet. There's a prediction for snow this evening, and a chance for more next Sunday.

When out on the road, it's always best to watch out for Pot holes, Sink holes, and those other Holes!

Do you suppose all this hullabaloo over global warming was just that? Now the natural cycle is migrating back towards cooler weather. Washington county Utah used to get up over 115F. A couple of summers ago La Verkin got up to but didn't exceed the upper 90sF. Last summer it didn't get over the low 100sF

Winters here back in the 1980s didn't get below the 40sF. Now we're see low 20sF

Climate change fits all scenarios.
