Spring Time?

This last weekend, there were so many people commenting on it being Spring time. I thought, are you serious? Well sure the weather was in the high 50's you know t-shirt weather, birds chirping, beginnings of flowers breaking through the hard ground, I thought, "Maybe?"

It seems so odd because last year during this time we were in Montana. Where you don't even mention Spring until the last week of May and 1st week of June. I'm not kidding. And then there are tales of snow falling on 4th of July. Montana has a growing season of 3 to 3 1/2 months. So when we moved to Idaho in May, spring was done. The hot weather was here.

So guess what? Today, we woke up to snow on the ground. That will teach all those people with high hopes to speak of Spring Time so freely!
