Very quiet in the forum. Is everyone using a mute? Did you all see your shadow and crawl back under the warm blankets for 6 more weeks of Winter. I think ol’ Phil came through this year. Come out and enjoy the 33°!

Yes. To me, it's winter until I see a whole week of highs over 85, which means it's winter until mid-May here in California. Also, I consider the summer here to be only about a month long. tongue

(I grew up in Dubai. Most years, the overnight lows in the coldest part of winter are around 60 there.)

You must be northern CA. I have relatives in southern CA, and it is never really cold there and very hot in the Summer.

Sacramento, which is just as hot as Southern California in the summers with temperatures peaking around 105. The winters are about 10 degrees colder than SoCal. I lived in the Los Angeles area for 10 years before moving to Sacramento, and I thought it was winter from November through April there too. Also, to me even Southern California only has six weeks of summer.

Dubai gets close to 130 degrees almost every summer, with heat index ("feels like" temperature) reaching 160. It's Arizona heat with Texas humidity. And that's why my perspective may be a little skewed. I think 100 degrees is great weather for outdoor sports, and 65 is barely tolerable, so everywhere in the US except Hawaii gets too cold in the winters, and Sacramento is about the coldest place I'm willing to live. I'm happiest with daytime temperatures in the 90s, which is March or April weather in Dubai.

So, yeah, I'm going back under the blankets.

🙂 Ha, no worries about the seasons here in my corner of Scotland - four seasons in one day, every day ! [ Well, I exaggerate somewhat, but it often feels like that ! ]

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

We have the four seasons here in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, but I could do with three. I hate winter, mainly because I get cabin fever real fast when winter sets in. I love being outdoors, especially working in my gardens and greenhouse. Some real crazy weather lately. Within one week we've had varying temperatures between -11 degrees (F) up to 60 degrees.

Right with you, @MoonShadows. 65° Monday. Actually got out my Spring coat and Peggy Sue’s Diner hat. That did not last long. 26° this morning. Good ol’ central NY. All our snow has melted, but we will get more. Of course, the dirty snow piles plowed on parking lots are still there, and will grow when it snows again. They will be in the parking lots until May or June, slowly melting after it warms up. They tease us as to what will be coming again after the nice warm Summer.

We typically have two seasons down here in south Florida: Tourist and Hurricane.

Finally putting two and two together. I mistook you for a different Dennis but I know exactly who you are including having had the pleasure of meeting you at Fiddlershop. 😁
