Why is the snow on my lawn still up over my waist? And over my head along the driveway? :(

Not exactly, according to Unca Cecil (http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a1_170b.html).

Ooh, ooh I know! I know! Starts with a 'C' and ends in a 'duh'? ;)
Really, I'm sorry to hear that. The sun is shining brightly today, but it's still a little chilly. The remains of the 15-foot tall snowman my neighbor made weekend before last is just about gone. Yesterday, it rained all day and turned into slushy flurries. Weird.
I found some new crocus blooms in the backyard that look just like saffron flowers.
Hope it gets better for you soon.

Today's high 72, down to 55 (freezing!) overnight. Tomorrow up to 79 with a low of 63.
I like spring. We don't usually get one -- we go straight from a high/low of 70/50 to 95/85 most years. But this year we're getting a month or so of nice, medium temperatures.

I feel your pain, Bookkeeper. There is still a lot of snow here - though apparently it's 3 degrees out right now, so there must be some melting happening. They don't really expect the temperatures to get back into the positives for another week though. We seem to be a good 5 degrees lower than the seasonal average most of the time. I have a feeling we'll be getting one more snow storm too, though there's nothing in the forecast to suggest it. Mother Nature is just being a bitch this year, I guess!
