          It might happen, it might not.
          Usually when the forecasters forecast it, it tends to slowly disappear, we will see.
          But it's about time we had just an inkling of spring.

                Supposed to reach 17c for just a couple of days here, at least it might feel warm!

                  Well, everything is responding to the recent warm weather down here. I am fully expecting dramatic growth now that night temps are 8 degrees or so.
                  Hey! Embrace the positive news about warmer weather folks :snorky:
