Finally, after several sunny days and warmish temperatures, i.e. above freezing, we're starting to see some grass; however, no crocuses just yet.  I can't get too excited just yet, because last year we had our last snowfall, about 6 inches, on 16 April, but I'll enjoy the weather we're having at the moment.

Mike,
Nice pics and a sure sign of spring.

Soon it will even reach those of us in New England.

But not quite yet. This was taken today Sunday, March 15, 2015 at 5:30 this evening.

You can see with that black dog as the backdrop that it was snowing when I took the pic.

An inch of snow fell last night with more on the way Confused. Happy Easter. Angry

Thanks for the pictures Mike! So there is hope then!

Everything is still dormant here also and we're in "mud season". That's when all of the frost that's in the ground melts. It can't go down due to the frost itself closing that escape route off, so it comes out to the surface, hence mud. It's by far the ugliest time of the year.

We still have a lot of snowpack on the ground, but where I've plowed the snow it's been mostly bare for days. Friday was in the high 60's and low 70s and I was out w/o a shirt and shorts on soaking up some badly needed sun for my squid colored skin (OK that's an exaggeration). The snow did a lot of melting that day.  The past 2 days it's been in the 30s and todays weather is strange. Bright blue sun that melts the snow that comes rolling in on squall lines. The weather will be much the same for the rest of the week. But spring is coming. This is when spring and winter duke it out, but spring always wins out this time of the year.
