A lot of people agree with you. Here is a link to a story about the groundhog being indicted for lying during a weather report.

Yes, hurry up, 90 degree weather.
/sigh
I should move to Oxnard.
(I live in Louisiana. We really don't have spring. We have Fall, Summer, and Hell.)

Man, I'm sitting inside looking at the fabulous outdoor chairs and table, longing to be able to sit outside and feel a spring breeze smelling the flowers, (well, with a pipe in mouth, not sure I can smell the flowers).
Can't wait

Here in Nova Scotia it is starting to come around. No great temps to brag about but some decent days mixed in with the numerous stormy, crappy days. Last week, I noticed my Tulips were sprouted about and inch or 2 above ground, then BAM, another snow storm. Now they are under 6 inches of snow again, but it is melting fast. Hopefully they will survive.

I must admit I am also getting anxious for spring to come. I live in Northern Ontario & can't wait for the snow to melt, weather to finally warm up so that I can once again enjoy a nice bowl of tobacco in my pipe out on the deck. Its been such cold long winter this year will be so nice to get back out & relax with my pipe.

Southern Ontario is still around 4C. I was looking out on my patio this afternoon while eating a nice big fat pita from Pita Pit, and thinking, damn my BBQ pit looks lonley and cold out there. I have come ribs in the freezer I'm going to smoke up next weekend for Easter. I hope it's nice out, I plan to enjoy a couple cans of Guiness, and a few bowls and while the BBQ does it's thing.

Darwin Ranch: you sir, are nuts, but that was a great video.
It's snowing here this AM in Maryland, 2-4" of wet snow on the grass is expected. I'm glad I didn't bother to wash the car over the weekend.......
I'm heading to Geneva NY tonight, hopefully an uneventful drive thru PA/NY.

As I write this it is snowing lightly in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania. A bunch of pipers were supposedd to get together tonight for the first time. It probably won't happen until next month now. While hope springs eternal, I'm eternally hopeful for spring.

I wouldn't mind the snow if I could smoke inside, but alas. I'd love to head to the smoke shop after work, but their lounge closes a mere thirty minutes after I get off.

Snowing here in East Tennessee! Yeah, and I was planning a day on the deck. Not happening today, tomorrow, or all this week. Ugh!
I'm with BRDavidson. Time for spring. Enough already.

One big disadvantage to living in Ontario, no smoke lounges at all. I have to smoke outside so the best I could come up with was a space heater in my shed. Big enough for a buddy to join me, but mostly I wait until the kids go to bed then I watch a movie in my cave.
