Anyone see anything that looks like spring, I had a couple of warming trends, all of my snow melted and I was thinking about mowing off my pastures, one in January and another early in Feb, both times, it cooled back down to single digits with lots of new snow.

Many trees and flowers in full bloom down south...
Pollen fills the air too

Must be nice, unless you have allergies.. Early in the spring up here when the evergreens start to pollinate, you can see clouds of yellow dust in the air, my red truck goes from red to yellow..

Laughin' here. Ya, I love winter for the skiing, the beauty, the change..

And I got fooled a couple of weeks back when we had warm temps here in the Northwest... It's snowed a few times since then... Big, dangerous avalanches in the Cascades.

Ya, it's still winter.

We are catching more and more days above freezing and a small crabapple is starting to get leaf buds. Yes the season is changing.

My weather reminds me of early spring in Alaska, the days would start to get longer and warmer, it would be above freezing in the day time with bright sun, we would be outside in shirt sleeves, doing "stuff", after a stretch 0f -50 in Fairbanks, above freezing was down right balmy, then the sun would go down and it would be back around "0".

It is usually warmer here by the end of February, not so this year, my wood pile has shrunk down to almost nothing. I need to load my chain saw, up on my ATV, I put tracks on that, so it goes through deep snow. I have been looking at a dead spar up on my ridge, today is the day that is coming down. There is enough wood in that old tree to get me through most of March.

I have pygmy owls up here, neat little guys. During my last warm spell I could hear them calling, after it cooled back down and snowed, I think they moved back down to lower elevations,, Pygmy Owl

We've had Robins and trees and plants are showing buds, but this doesn't always mean Spring is here. I usually go by the number of Cardinals doing their mating call, which I've only heard one so far. Either Spring isn't here or birds are turning to internet dating sites.

The "when the snow is gone" kind of depends on how many times the snow has been gone during the same year. Robins are not a good indicator, I usually have robins when it is still snowing, but when the Varied Thrush appear, it is spring.

Sunny right now and 42, glad I got the fire wood cut earlier, it's "too hot", to cut wood now..:)

I remember a time when snow stayed all winter, but it doesn't happen that often anymore. We can have a bright sunny day in the 60's one day, a blizzard the next and have the snow melt off two days later. One of the many reasons I hate Ohio.

I've seen Robins standing outside in a foot of snow, holding a sign that said "will sing for worms".

Eastern MT winter keeps hanging on. This pic taken over a week ago and it snowed twice since. Worst winter since 1955 says my Dad who`s 81. Snowshoe only to the cabin.

Last spring early June. I`m so ready for spring

View from the cabin

We are headed into solar minimum, the bottom of the cycle should be in 2020. Indications are that the next cycle will be even lower, we may be headed into another ice age.

I have been doing my due diligence, to increase atmospheric carbon, hoping for my share of the "Global Warming", not so much so far..!
