    Now they are threatening a freeze and maybe some snow! I can't wait
    until it warms up again. It makes me cold thinking about it. Never mind
    the warm appartment I now live in. I wished for real that it would warm
    up for a while. I know that I was complaining about the heat this last
    summer at 105 and cooking. At least I didn't worry about freezing.

    The weather here is drab at present ... neither hot nor cold, neither sunny nor cloudy.

    I wish we would, too, CT64 ... at least I wouldn't feel so blasted hot in the summer months then ... .

    We already use the Metric system for our currency, so a conversion to more of a world standard in temperatures should also be the norm here.

    There is a no nonsense conversion website here for those who would like to also enter "C" degrees along with their "F" degree postings.

    Um, Canadians use Celsius, not Fahrenheit...

    Lovely day today; snow's melting and I saw crocus and tulip shoots!

    I think maybe winter's finally over... maybe?

    Hey, Rojo ...

    Great to hear that Montreal is in the "defrost" mode finally, and the first signs of spring.
    I envy you (and others) who can enjoy the natural beauty of of Tulips. They were always a beautiful sight when I lived in Washington state - miles of open fields of varying colour.

    Yesterday here it was 94° (34.4 C). Right now (11:30AM) it's at 86° (30° C), loads of sunshine, and the desert poppies are starting to bloom.

    A dull day, but no rain despite a very dark cloud.

    A grey sky with specks of blue just trying to burst through, "English" rain also.

    Thanks Kh; it sure is nice not to have to put boots on when going outside.

    Looking forward to tulips and all the other flowers...

    Krummhorn I think poppies are just as pretty. We don't get the red ones
    like Arizona. Here we get the kind that look like carnations. What a
    copy cat of a flower. You guys have the Mexican poppies and wild
    and colorful daisies. In Pheonix close to where you live there is an
    orange grove and the orange trees are blooming with their sweet
    fragrance. We don't have that here. Right now all I smell is wild
    onions and daffidels!

    Judy, daffodils are called paaskelilije in Danish, which means "Easter Lilies" ... very apt.

    The daffidils are almost gone thanks to monday's last frost. Apple trees
    are getting ready to bloom. They smell good. It won't be long until the
    rose bushes start to have roses. Now they really smell good. The temps
    here are now 50 degrees F.

    The first flowers of spring are out; white Perce Neiges (Snow drops?) and yellow crocuseseses. Yay!

    I'm waiting for the next thing the Locust trees. They put out white
    little blooms that smell sweet and then Blackberry season in May and
    honeysuckles. They smell like the orange blossoms. Very sweet
    fragrance when they are close by. Oh by the way what this thread
    is about, it's sunshine and very warm. A good day for walking and
    enjoying the nice weather.
