    After weeks of (albeit much needed) rain, spring has suddenly sprung upon us here in the desert. Pleasant sunny days abound. The daffodils are out. The croci are already getting old. I took a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood with the wife and kids this afternoon. First time I've done that in months. And as I type, a cool gentle breeze wafts over my desk through the window that I'm opening for the first time since October or November (not including January's unfortunate diaper-changing incident when I had to get the reek out of the office).

    Spring and fall are definitely the best seasons, in my opinion. Summer is always too hot. In the spring there's baseball and blossoms. In the fall there's football and the turning of the leaves. Nice. :cool:

    Ah you bitch :) I was going to agree, because it got up to 55F here, with sunshine. We got a *hint* of spring. Hopefully within the next couple weeks, it'll sit tight in the 60s, after 5 months of seasonal-affective disorder i'm ready for some freaking sunshine :cool:

    Plus, my new sunglasses look really cool with my new haircut, and i'm dangerously close to in-shape, so i gotta go show off ;)

    Well if it makes you feel any better, the nights are still too damn cold, as you can see. Life in the desert and all that. And I swear this house has one-ply tissue paper for insulation. So we huddle up under a lot of blankets and have to sprint to the shower in the morning. :rolleyes:

    Yes, thanks, much better. But tonight my wife says her head is starting to "fill up with snot." :(

    This weekend, we've had 85 and 83 degrees F but it's going back down to 68 degrees F tomorrow. Still, the furnace doesn't have to run. :)

    How are those in the southern hemisphere doing since Autumn is approaching?

    That was more information than we needed to hear. :p

    We have been to warm here in Boston the past week, in the 50's. Looking forward to the lower 40's this week. Spring always tends to be the worst season. I have no interest in baseball or football. But I'm looking forward to Fall already. I'm hoping for cool weather as long as possible, June would be nice.

    I couldn't be happier. High today was 78, low is a pleasant 55. I spent the entire day in the yard, mowing, weeding flowerbeds, general goof off around the yard business. (I even got a sunburn.) :D (By the way, all that was a good thing! ;))

    I hate winter. Thank goodness it is over. :):):)

    Today it was about 90 degrees F. Here is a Hi-Low chart for the temps here in the desert...

    Winter - 73/40
    Spring - 90/60
    Summer - 105/80
    Fall - 100/70

    Weird, because its usually around 112-115 degrees in the summer when I look at the thermometer.

    I hate every season but Winter here. Its always hot.

    Ah yes. The low desert. That explains why winter is the only tolerable season.

    I'm chillin' in the High Desert, near Victorville.

    We are having a return to winter today! :) 12n T 33 WC 22 with light snow. I just wish that it was accumulating more. Summer always comes too soon.

    -2 degrees C (about 29 F) here and snow! Canada has just two seasons; Winter and July :rolleyes:

    Seriosly though, when it get to about 10 degrees (50 F) people are so happy its "warm" they stroll around in shorts exclaming loudly about the weather.
