    Thinking spring as the snow flies in the Puget Sound region of Western Washington.
    Guess its time to coddle the house plants and start the tenders I lifted before the freeze killed them. Unusal weather around the country. Here its no different.

    It's pretty crazy alright, and we are supposed to get more tonight and tomorrow? Yipe! Ok, I guess we are spoiled-rotten weather wimps by, say, Minnesota standards, but I LIKE being a weather wimp!

    Welcome to GardenStew Jewell.
    Our weather in Scotland doesn't seem to be able to make up it's mind just what to do. We've had snow, sleet, rain, sunshine and gale force winds - all in one day!!! :rolleyes:
    I look forward to getting to know you. :-D

    Welcome Jewell, from South Louisiana. Today it was 75 degrees and the weather man said it should be in the 70's the next four days. A couple of weeks ago we had the first snow in several years. So, the weather has been a bit unusual here too. 8)
