The is the first time I remember that it is 80 degrees here the week before the mass exodus from Illinois and Indiana to Florida to escape the end of winter!?!? Confusing, but lovely. Daffodils and even a couple of tulips and all the flowering trees are out.
I get where you're coming from Theresa. I enjoy the nice weather too. But what will the environment be like 100 years from now? I'm in Kentucky. We had practically no winter at all. We need to kill some bugs! Get cold. Snow. Kill Bugs! Then I'll take the warm weather.
Just over a yr ago in the UK we had one of the worst winter's in living memory, now in March 2012 it's hotter than it has ever been my my lifetime for this time of yr. Monday afternoon I was almost passing out, it was so hot. Folk in Scotland are out in tee shirts and shorts, though I expect it'll get cold again before the real summer begins
