How Soon Spring
Aye, I reckon your right with a while to go yet, I saw our first snow drops here today, so I think we're ahead of you.

I'm a few hours north of you and Friday night it went down to minus 40. Centigrade or Fahrenheit, take your pick--they're both the same. It's the coldest weather I've experience in my life, and I'm *old*.
Another 6 weeks we'll have puddles galore and then a few weeks after we'll have spring. I hope.

-40 is pretty damn cold no matter how you say it. I hope we'll have spring. Some years we've gone from winter to summer without passing go or collecting $200.

I here ya, because , like how many pictures can you take of plants like that? But the good thing is, if it's minus 40, you don't have to know if it's Fahrenheit or Celsius, it's the same.

I think I'd rather deal with it here than there. Forecasting +40s here this week!

A hopeful sign: the high temps in the 10-day forecast are all above freezing.
