Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
It's not truly Spring until we have seven full days without a trace of snow -- not sticking on the ground, not flakes in the air.

Monday I drove home from a wonderful weekend in Brunswick, Bath, and Bristol, Maine. It was gray, damp, and cold all weekend and I saw flakes in the air mid-day.

I drove home to Nottingham, New Hampshire via I-95 on Monday. What an incredibly TEDIOUS drive! Wind, rain, fog... Sleet as I was passing through Yarmouth, remnants of early morning snow in the grass and rock crevices around Biddeford.

The temperature kept rising, degree by degree, from 34F in Harpswell to 39F when I got home. Snow on the side of the road after I crossed Rte. 125 in Lee, NH and I turned into a white driveway. A very slippery hard white sludge was outside my car door as I debarked and covered the deck.

Just tired of it. A year ago it was 83F. I'm not seeing any leaf buds on trees and damned little greening up of grass.
