    default Will USA Spring Arrive Soon So We Can Plant??

    I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired of wintry weather....it is so cold here I am using a heating pad to warm my feet and hands every so often.  And yes the furnace is running non stop.  The wind is blowing hard and it finally stopped sleeting and turned to snow.  Will we ever have spring so we can plant?  One year we had almost half the garden out by March 15 (early stuff).  A long way from that now.

    Currently it is 13 degrees F and going lower by morning (midnight right now)

    And it is almost hilarious that we will spring forward our clocks this coming weekend!  But the weather man says it will be in the 50's by Friday.  I pray he is right!

    Bad here too Glad, but our problem is rain. .  Garden has still got puddles on it.  The plants in the greenhouses are growing well but
    will soon need to go outside.
    Wettest winter since records began.

    Oh dear, Glad & BigBilly. You both seem to have been having unpleasant winters. Do hope, for you both & your veggie gardens, that spring weather will come along really soon.

    I just posted in the weather thread about our last round of winter weather.  I am hoping to get out of this house tomorrow first time since Saturday!

    Oh dear, Glad. Do hope you haven't got cabin fever. 

    Bruce watches the Decorah bald eagles' nest in Iowa & yesterday it as so covered in snow you could not see the bald eagle sitting on the eggs, at all. It was covered with snow. The nest is still completely covered but the parent bird was visible.

    Yes Iowa has had a lot of snow this year....been a rough winter for most of the country.

    Yeah I have cabin fever but dealt with it before so nothing new....just a way of life.

    Cabin fever is something we have never had to deal with (must be awful) & I do sincerely hope you will see a change for the better with your weather very, very soon.  :)

    Thanks Joy.

    May not get out again today....depends on the drive as it does face the north and has less sun to melt.

    Temps are to go into the 40's by afternoon....will be a welcomed event!

    Oh dear, such wild swings in your weather would have you wondering what was coming next, Glad. You must be eager to get stuck into your spring gardening by now. 

    Hope the weather calms down for you very soon.
