With only a few more days left of spring – Spring begins at 9:57AM PDT on the 20th – it really is starting to feel and sound and look like spring.

For the first time that I remember in the 8 years In this house here, our daffodils, crocuses and snowdrops have all bloomed at the same time.

These daffodils and snowdrops were defiantly poking up from under our sun deck and an old broom 🙂

Expect the showers this morning to end by noon and then we will have spotty showers most of the rest of the work week.

By Friday and Saturday we should dry out completely but more rain will be coming Saturday night and into Sunday. Next week looks unsettled as well.

That heat over the Arctic circle is simply stunning. If you are wondering what effect that might be having on sea ice. The ice pack is currently near record low levels for this time of year.
