Appreciation of weather is a state of mind.

Take a mild Spring day for example. If you have that weather in the spring its nice. If you have the exact weather day in July you say it sucks and if you have it in December you say its a [b]beautiful[/b] day yet the weather is the same in all 3 cases.

Best,

Tim

It is raining here, and I agree with you totally. Those who disagree with you sound like cranky old women who are obsessed with the present temp.

I'll go with Kregg. The US has a much wider range of interesting and habitable climes than any other country I can think of.

I do feel obligated to remind everyone that in Australia, and New Zealand they are experiencing Fall weather.

Al,

Not to mention Autumn.

It is currently 19 degrees Celcius or 66 Fahrenheit here in Cairns and as it's already near Artic now, I am dreading Winter in a couple of weeks. If it gets any colder I expect snow. (I never saw snow as a kid - and always dreamed of seeing snow - so many people told me I would see snow if that was my wish, but so far - only confetti.)

I do know that a typhoon is a clockwise hurricane, and all vortexes are different in the southern hemisphere than they are in the nothern hemisphere, but Autumn, and Fall are the same everywhere.

Your new avatar looks spooky to me my dear, and I do hope you haven't picked up that nasty smoking habit again.

Al,

It takes a good half hour to airbrush that white silicone make-up on, so I drive to shows made up. If you think it looks spooky in an avatar - you should see the reaction at traffic lights, particularly in the middle of the day when I'm off to do Ladies Luncheons.

Still not smoking but I am single handed causing a world wide shortage of chewing gum.

And it got down to 14 Celsius/57 Fahrenheit last night - I might have to buy a snow plough.

We Southern folks are somewhat laid back. Probably why some of us native Sotherners talk with a slow, Southern drawl. (some more noticible than others) But since we are laid back we sometimes like to conserve words and say two things with one sentence.

Living in Orlando, Florida, where it's hot [b]most[/b] of the time. ...The place where all the Northerners flock to in the Winter time. ...And one of the most traveled to vacation destinations in the world, you can imagine how crowded our roads get 6 months out of the year.

To shorten things up a bit, I have heard my fellow Floridians complain about the hot weather and the driving abilities of the folks from up North like this:

[b]"It's not the heat, it's the stupidity!"[/b]

Up north we have a saying too, because so many have of our natives residents have migrated to California, and Florida. We always say that "the smart ones move back". I have been to Orlando, and I've been to La La Land, but I'll stay here thank you.

Recently, I completed a garden project for my brother-in-law ahead of a visit from the former president of Mexico Vicente Fox. The weather has been so perfectly moderate for our region (zone 8), the gardens looked established and lush in time for our hosting event.

Everything's relative. We have friends who are missionaries in Ghana. When the temperature "falls" into the 90s (30s C), the locals get out their jackets...

I'm almost positive that if lived with freezing temps a few months a year, I'd love mild spring days all the more.

If I can't have mild, I definitely prefer 50 degrees weather to 90 degree weather (and that's being conservative; I also prefer 40 degrees to 85).

For variety, our years usually swing over 110 degrees F. Typically the coldest nights can be -35C (-22F) and our warmest days are around +32C (90F).

On either kind of day, you'll hear people saying which one bothers them more.

Laurie,

While in my back yard today walking my dogs. I noticed the groundhog that lives under my porch out in my front yard. Momma had 3 young groundhogs out for a spring outing and they couldn't be cuter. To see this wonderful site and be reminded that spring is the awaking of new life made me think of your post. Thanks for reminded us to stop and smell the roses!

Best,

Tim

Thanks, Tim. I've seen some groundhogs out this spring, but no little ones.
I really admire the mourning doves around here, as well.

I like spring too. Lilacs are my favorite....I just wish they would last a bit longer. I love the fragrance of them.

A nice light misty rain is wonderful. "Singin' in the Rain" with Gene Kelly (he was [b]awesome[/b]) comes to mind. "Pennies from Heaven" with Bing Crosby is a good one to hum in the rain as well.

:) And of course, John Denver can't be beat!

Interesting. I didn't realize ours were especially cute and cooperative. I've been outside reading a book this evening and watching one of them grazing in the clover. Not uncommon around here.

The weather here in the UK can't make up its mind at the moment.
At least it didn't rain to much at the festival I went to. I spent more time doing magic that week than I did watching bands. isn't it always the way.
