The rain has stopped, the snow failed to accumulate, and the sun is peeking out with temps in the low 40s. This is NOT a normal winter for us. A few more years of this, and I'll be tempted to start planting orange trees.

The grass in the pasture has grown 2-3 inches this week. It looks like spring has arrived a month early.

Not good, Ivan. A late cold-snap can set that back quickly. Your temps are moderated by the pacific, but around here a Canadian arctic high can slam stuff back hard. If my apple trees have budded and we get a frost, we get precious few pollinators with few blossoms to visually clue in on, and few apples as a result. This inconsistent weather is a bear. Local orchards are falling on hard times.

Mid 30s and raining. This is one very odd winter.

My wife fell in the driveway this morning because that light rain had slicked up the frozen pavement. She's OK - just a bit sore.

Thank you for teaching us about meteorology. You're more awesome than a monkey wearing a tuxedo made out of bacon riding a cyborg unicorn with a lightsaber for the horn on the tip of a space shuttle closing in on Mars while engulfed in flames. - Flint

45F and climbing under sunny skies. Tomorrow could hit 60 F. Much better than yesterday - low 30s and freezing rain.

Ah spring, when the flowers bloom, the birds sing, and you wake up to four inches of snow... HUH????!!!! This is a surprise!

This is the most accumulation we've had all winter and it's still coming down.

I'm afraid my fruit trees will bloom too soon, and be without pollinators or be killed of by a late frost. Far too warm here.

Everything will be killed here including the pollinators.

My fear, too, dlg. Things are changing too fast, and nature can't keep up, I'm afraid.

Damn! It's still a bit cool in the house, but 82 F in the shade outside. I fear for early-blooming crops because there is still plenty of "winter" ahead.

The UK seems to be living up to an old weather proverb: if the ice is thick enough for a duck to walk on before Christmas, it won't be thick enough for a goose to walk on all year.
Walk?!
Here, Canada geese and Canuck ducks are hatched knowing how to skate. It's very handy for the unfortunate ones who miss their flights for migration.

Pine pollen season started here a few days ago, about two or three weeks early. My wife's car is now light green instead of white.
