You are blessed to have spring in Oregon! Here in MN we are still getting snow, rain and flooding. Not that we haven't dealt with this before but this time of year? Just wrong. I'm flying to San Diego next week - had enough of this!
Sorry to hear that, Mz M. Here in the Brainerd Lakes area we had sunshine and comfortable mid-40's. About one third of the yard is showing through the snow now. I'm crossing my fingers that we've seen our last snowfall and that the warm up will happen quickly.

It's been beautiful this week in Washington State. Actually hit 70. Really nice to not have the rain. The flowers are blooming and lawns are being mowed finally. A few more days and we were going to have to bail it.
I think spring will get here next week. I'll finally start to feel comfortable again.
We have hit 80 degrees today...it feels so good. All of the flowers are blooming, the lilacs smell heavenly. I'm just hoping that it doesn't jump right into the 90's and 100's. I would like to have a couple of months without a high electricity bill...no heat and no a/c, just wonderfully open windows.
