You Know it is Spring When ...

Spring started slowly here in the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee. We had the longest, hardest winter this state has seen in 40 years. But in the last 8 days, the grass has sprouted, the trees are in bud and blossom and it was warm enough to grill hot dogs and brats outside and have a supper of potato salad, baked beans and said brats and dogs.

I think summer also started since today's high is supposed to reach 80. Not that I am complaining, but I really like the spring temps of mid 60's since it is great for walking. Especially on the hills here.

  1. Gee, you just described Metro Detroit...only we didn't have a hard winter. Heh heh heh.

  2. I think we got 12-14 inches of snow at least this year. When we were living in Michigan, that would have been a great weather. My utility bill for February was $175 (total including water). Less than half of our largest winter bill in Michigan for just heat.

  3. Our weather right now is perfect, if a little warm! I'm loving getting to go to the batting cages :-) And I'm about to go for a walk/jog OUTSIDE! WOOO!
