Who knows. Meteorological spring starts in only 10 days though, so we have two chances to be disappointed.

The meteorological seasons are deliberately pitched to disappoint us! I ignore them studiously!

It doesn't really matter anyway because spring probably won't actually start until May round here.

How? Where?

That can't be this year, nothing it out at all yet, or even poking its head up.

Is that a traffic jam outside your house, or do you own a fleet of cars?

Never mind that it's all covered in snow right now as well.

Caught a break today though by the looks of it. It was supposed to be another 4", then changed to 2", and now they say we'll barely even get 1". Freezing rain can be a pain but no plowable snow is a win in my book.

Yeah, it won't look like that pic until May.

Still, as you say, sleety stuff is advance on the alternative.

At least you get four seasons in the correct order. Florida has summer, a cooler snap that they like to call winter but is like a 'proper' summer for normal people. Last week we had Autumn, where all the evergreen Live Oaks (yeah, even the Oak trees are ****ed up in this State) drop their leaves over the course of a week, albeit an 85F Autumn, which will no doubt lead rapidly to a high humidity 'summer' with the odd hurricane thrown in for good measure....
