As our resident weatherman, MarkBC has taught us, the first of March is the beginning of Meteorological Spring - March, April, May.

 

Bring on the budding leaves, wildflowers, warmer temperatures, sunshine. We are ready! :)

Thanks ski3pin!  

 

Spending a few hours today with more snow-shoveling and now "roof-raking" (to prevent ice dams, leakage) got in the way of trumpeting the first day of spring... it slipped my mind for some reason.  :rolleyes:

 

But i still totally endorse the meteorological seasons! :)

Bah humbug! Spring what?  More snow today-can't see the ground over here in the high desert,  to see if the crocus and daffodils are really coming up :huh:!  They say it will snow and rain all this week with temps in the 40's-maybe the rain will wash off the snow and I can check and see if the crocus have popped up :P !  Ah well, they say the snow pack is way above normal, and  the drought  is over here-sooo happy spring everyone! (sure am glad I did not put the snow shovel away).

Been "spring like" most of the year here on the coast.

Lots of flowering trees and spring flower bulbs.

Sorry guys someone has to live in these areas.

And then next Sunday guess what,DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME.

Thought that would make everyone happy.

 . . . the first of March is the beginning of Meteorological Spring - March, April, May.

 

What is the significance of Meteorological Spring?

 

I have 3 feet of snow on the ground, its going back below 0ºF this week, and we have at least 4 and probably 6 more weeks of tough sledding.  Now change to daylight saving time is an event, but I wish they would just leave the @#$% clocks alone.

P.S. my snow crocus could be blooming but nobody will ever know.

A tidy foot of snow forecast for us this weekend. That's on top of a couple of feet on the ground already. Got no place left to put the stuff- spring should hurry up!
