Summer has been unending this year. The night time temperatures are still in the high teens and it has been very dry since early January. The sea temperatures have only just dipped below 20. This is winter in New Zealand in an El Nino year.

I love the log burner in winter but it is far too hot to light it yet :-(

What I love about this time of year, is that the insects have yet to hatch out and run amok, because it's too cold at night; but the flora are budding and blossoming all about. It will end all too soon, when it gets warm enough for creepy crawly flying things.

The weather here is raining another serial killer spewing death for 3 and wounding two. Coincidentally with the DC snipers who shot and killed people at the same intersection and grocery store. This time a federal cop that was stripped of all that he felt he had achieved went on a murder spree at locations in which we see movies and go to eat. Picking up some Zithromax at my drugstore I ran into the arrest scene of the killer and watched his car get towed away.

I was thinking of starting a new thread called Your daily local shooting but The Brits don't have this kind of problem that Americans do. Shootings here get as much coverage as the weather and often even more.

To me the shootings have become as common as the weather in conversation, injury and more often than weather, death.

I scheduled a singaround and flower hike at my house April 9, but very few people showed up because it was threatening to rain. We worked around rainstorms, and saw lots of flowers without getting wet. I was hoping to schedule a makeup hike this Saturday, May 7, but it's supposed to rain all weekend. The flowers sure love it, though - there were more flowers in the wooded ravine next door, than I've seen in the 14 years I've lived here.
The mosquitoes love it, too. I just came back from a flower hike, and I'm itching all over. The flowers were pretty, though.

Gray, cold, and wet, and forecast to remain that way right up to Mother's Day Weekend. Well, at least it is above freezing, and things are growing, blossoming, budding, and putting forth leaves and shoots. Those things will rejoice in cool humid weather even though the gray skies are depressing to us bipeds.

Your part of Massachusetts, Joe F., sounds a great deal like my part. I'm just glad to put as much distance as possible between this ending winter, and the 2014-2015 winter, I need say no more, SHUDDER.

RE: relocating. Do stop and consider the cicadas. Another batch --"Brood V" -- is due to emerge with the next warm rainstorms, which raise the ground temperature where they are getting ready to come out of hibernating.   

"Brood V" is supposed to be concentrated mainly around southeastern Ohio and southwestern Pennsylvania, with that sliver of West Virginia in the mix. In 2020, however, there is another big brood, forget which Roman numeral designation, due to come out; and that will occupy more of Virginia.

Currently there are numerous online articles updating the whole periodic watch for broods of cicadas, both the 13-year and the 17-year types; many of them have brightly colored maps of the lower 48 states, showing the geographical distribution of differently-timed emergences.

Surely not winter here in Massachusetts -- there are leaves & blossoms on some of the trees -- and last week we had a couple of days in the 70s (F), so I got my annual haircut; but mostly it hovers in the 50s. This happens every spring: I keep being indignant that it is not 10 degrees warmer, right up into the 80s. Maybe I should move back to Virginia.

Yowsa; we set out about 11am for the care facility where the FIL now resides. A few scattered flakes were falling. About 2/3 of the way there, we drove into it. A couple of minutes after that, we drove slowly unto the ramp from Michigan 24 to I75, zigzagged all over the ramp, and crept on hardly believing we hadn't gone off the ramp. I went right back off the ramp to head back north, and enjoyed 30 miles of driving as nasty as I've ever seen in my life. NO traction, crud freezing on the wipers, stretching to see through what spots stayed halfway clear. A pickup pulls across short in front of us, I'm scared to brake and scared not to, he makes it before we hit, and my heart gradually slides back down from the throat. We made it home unscathed. It's been an hour or so. and I've settled back to feeling fairly normal. April ????

Here in the supposedly sweet sunny south, high winds coming for Saturday (been windy all week) and low of 25F Saturday night. The hydrangeas are fully leafed and setting flower bud, the solomon's seal is up and the earliest day lilies are sending up flower scapes, and the azaleas are in full bloom. Fruit trees either blooming or already starting to set tiny fruit. Strawberries in the fields.

I'm not sure covering will be enough to protect stuff at that low a temperature, plus, if the wind doesn't die late day, will be very hard to keep covers on and hydrangea branches from breaking under cover whipped by wind.

An occasional light frost is not unusual the first part of April, but 25?

This time I think the road crews, God bless 'em, were caught napping. In previous storms, those truck drivers have done yeoman's work, plowing, sanding, salting, treating the road surfaces. But this week their timing was off. They were just that little bit behind the arrival of the snow and ice. And so the driving conditions suffered, especially those Monday rush-hour timespans. The trucks were out there, to be sure, but they got there too late, and they were scrambling to catch up with the snow and ice, instead of being prepared for it. The crashes and spin-outs were not major, most of them, but there were such quantities of them!

It did nothing to help drivers' morale when one car had a rotten TREE, for heaven's sake, crash on the roof and kill both occupants.

More about Sunday: yes, it snowed. Then the sun did come out. Then snow, sunshine, snow, sunshine, etc. Today, Monday, snow fell then stopped in time for me to go to yoga. It was an easy drive. Snow hadn't accumulated on pavement. By the end of the class, snow had started falling again--thick flakes. I skipped the fitness circuit to come right home, also skipping the stop at the market I'd planned. I live about 2 miles from the Y. The short drive was horrible. Untreated roads; cars sliding everywhere. Thank goodness for anti-lock brakes and front-wheel drive. I've never seen the skid signal appear on the control panel so frequently. At 7 PM I took shower, got into my PJs, then heard the plow in the condo parking lot. I threw on my coat and hat, brushed the snow off my car, and moved it so the plow could do a good job clearing my corner of the lot. I am so done with winter, but Mother Nature may not be.
