    First wave of showers and storms just went through. Per our usual this should neuter anything to come later this afternoon/evening.

    That would be sweet indeed. We have a little lake cabin. Usually around now we would be getting the dock and lift in. Haven't even considered it yet this year. Water too high and way too cold.

    36F and mist/drizzle. I can't take this any more.

    Pouring rain here. Big fat juicy snowflakes mixing in. We are at 1650 feet.

    This spring continues to suck beyond my wildest expectations. I stood outside in the drizzle an hour ago, waiting to put the kids on the schoolbus, and we were swarmed by black flies. I looked at the growing grass that I don't stand a chance of mowing before it reaches jungle height because we can't get 2 days of dry weather. And thought that Tucson, even at 95F, sounded pretty damned good.

    Colder, yes. But nothing *feels* worse to me than the current 40F and drizzle.

    Dismal in upstate NY as well. Wet snow most of yesterday. Cold rain most of today. Grass greening up, enlarging buds on the lilacs but everything else is just brown and gray. April and May are interminable.

    I'm with you for 10 months of the year. Summer here, spectacular. Fall is beautiful, doubt it could be better anywhere else. Winter, I love the snow and snow sports. But April and May, when everyone else is having spring and we're in cold mud season, sucks. There's no way to put lipstick on pig of a day like yesterday.

    Yeah flurrying here, but no accumulation yet. F this.

    No fun! No hoorah! I love snow as much as anyone. But there's so much spring yardwork to do, I can't watch a whole weekend go down the tubes. Either give me enough snow to get my skis out of the basement, or give me sunny and 65F!

    That's not funny.

    Please let’s keep that minimum over Otsego County. We are already waterlogged, with the lakes full, and flooding just sucks.

    Nice hailer! Two lines went through. The first had some small scattered hail. The second was more impressive:

    We missed you at Plattekill today. In the woods: Bluebird can't get any more bluebird than this:

    I measured 12 to 13 inches at various points on our property. Backcountry skiing off the charts good today:
