    Happy Spring Everyone!
    Just wanted to wish everyone a happy spring.

    We have had a lot of rain the last two days in my area (about 6"). There were a lot of flood warnings and roads closed, but today the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and my daffodils are up about 8 inches .

    What's it like in your neck of the woods?


    Have a great day,
    Bettylou

    What area exactly is this, Betty Lou?

    It has been rainy and extremely windy (over 45 MPH) in my neck of the woods. I'm in Stafford, VA. The sun is shining here today as well, and it is very warm. We just can't wait for the winds to stop.

    Happy Spring to you and all ABW-ers from me too!!

    Sorry, I thought I had that in my profile. I am in southern Indiana. It was windy here yesterday also. Not so bad today. It is cold here though. It was the strangest thing last night, it was snowing, raining, and hailing all at the same time, even included lightning and thunder. I have never seen anything like that before. It was actually kind of neat!

    Right now it's pretty mild and about 30 degrees, we've got a snow advisory for 2 to 6 inches of snow overnight. Woo hoo, Spring is here.

    Happy Spring! (Wish I was getting some.)

    At my house it's grey and damp. Our daffs are peeking out of the ground but just barely. We've had lots of rain lately, like Bettylou, and flood warnings too. We actually had a creek running through our back yard last week! I expect a bumper crop of peepers this year. At least all the snow has melted.

    SPRING! Come and get your love! I'm waiting!

    It has also been really rainy here in Philadelphia, but come to think of it, winter was very rainy too. Windy and rainy, but I'm a happy girl because my commute is from the bed to the desk! (woo hoo!)

    We were under severe weather conditions a few days ago, but all we got was a little rain. Today is kinda cold, around 45 this morning, but it's suppose to warm up to about 75.

    I love spring time, I already asked for a week off next week. My kids are out of scool for spring break, and I figure we can enjoy it together.

    It was a Lover and his Lass
    Shakespeare wrote a great song in praise of Spring:

    William Shakespeare 15641616

    It was a lover and his lass,
    With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,
    That o'er the green corn-field did pass,
    In the spring time, the only pretty ring time,
    When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
    Sweet lovers love the spring.

    Between the acres of the rye,
    With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,
    These pretty country folks would lie,
    In the spring time, the only pretty ring time,
    When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
    Sweet lovers love the spring.

    This carol they began that hour,
    With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,
    How that life was but a flower
    In the spring time, the only pretty ring time,
    When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
    Sweet lovers love the spring.

    And, therefore, take the present time
    With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,
    For love is crown`d with the prime
    In the spring time, the only pretty ring time,
    When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
    Sweet lovers love the spring.

    When did it become Spring? It is still snowing in Montreal and tomorrow will be -6. Whoever made this day Spring should be fired from their job of organising the first day of the a new season
