    I hope we have COLD COLD weather coming.

    I'm worried about the skeeters.
    Mild winters mean millions of blood suckers were not killed off during the winter.

    It will be an unbearable summer in Louisiana if we don't get some freezing weather soon.

    Die skeeters!!! DIE

    I'm just wanting 6 weeks of winter... period. We've gotten rain and warm weather and the wildflowers are blooming .. *rolls eyes*

    I walked two blocks last night to meet with a friend and was sweating my butt off by the time I got there..

    A little winter ... please!

    If we are in for 6 more weeks like the last 6 weeks here in So CA., I'm just perfectly fine with that. I've already got peas, arugula and spinach in, along with a ton of flowers. And am working on the next few plantings, too...and of course working on the whole garden - front, side and back.

    So I'm good with 6 more weeks like we've had the last 6 weeks...will give me time to finish getting trees trimmed, and all the gardens completely set up and planted, before I start spring cleaning. LOL.

    Georgia’s most famous groundhog, General Beauregard Lee, declared spring to be just around the corner after emerging from his plantation-style home at Gwinnett County’s Yellow River Game Ranch on a cloudy Thursday morning and seeing no shadow.

    February 2 and 52 degrees (as opposed to the 18 inches of snow we had last year). If we have six more weeks of this, I say bring it!!!
