give me an S...give me a P

give me an R...give me a ..... well, I think you can figure out where this is heading. 

SPRING!! SPRING!!! SPRING!!!

Things are warming up here in central Kentucky this week. We will get a taste of spring weather as a system from the southwest takes control of our weather. By Thursday temps will be up in the sixties and there is a chance of thunderstorms. 


Ahhh!!! spring, when the flowers start to poke there sweet tender shoots out of the earth, when soft breezes stir the air, when people smile again and speak to their neighbors.....

HOLD ON LAURA

This is still February, and although a tease of spring weather is wonderful, actual spring is still a month away, and the ten day forecast shows highs will only be in the thirties next week. 


For most of the country this has been a terrible winter. In the northeast, Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage is digging out of snow that is measured in feet. 

I hear naysayers who believe that this means there is no global warming. Unfortunately the climate change that we are experiencing produces extremes in weather and can produce more intense snows. 

Does this mean we can expect more winters like this one?

SIGH!!!

This leads me to an important question. Is anyone interested in sharing a tent in Key West?

    1. I used to live in sunny southern California, Gwen, but there were a few too many earthquakes for me. Never satisfied I guess.

  8. Could you do me a favor and do some research as to where we can all move and NOT have weather extremes! lol No hurricanes, tropical storms, earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes or snow storms allowed. Let me know and I will pick you up on my way through- xo Diana

  9. i'm getting to the point of thinking I made a mistake in investing in a piece of property. Instead I should have used the money to buy a mobile home near the kids and another somewhere warm. Of course the way things are going the somewhere warm could end up being cold and i'd be no further ahead.

  16. No tent, Laura!
    My sis is there, I think I need to pop in on her.
    At least you are getting spoiled with SOME nice weather!
    As far as the eye can see it is nothing but snow here!

  17. Hello Laura. No, no tent here. As face-freezing as the weather in New England gets and as deep as the snow accumuates, I still won't complain. I'm a cold weather girl, through and through.

    Your "daffodillies" look so inviting. We all, I think, yearn for spring.

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog and commenting, too. Always a pleasure for me when I see you stopped by. Susan
