Will that [70's in GJ] feel great or what?

Yes, but definitely no for March.

Suppose we all might as well enjoy these spring-like temps in winter, in the here and now. For no one may much like this coming summer and what it portends.

Not interested. I'd rather it snow a lot more and keep the cold temperatures longer. I never liked summer numbers like 71+ Fahrenheit outside unless it's fairly cloudy.

An above average temperature in the spring is not necessarily an indication that a hot summer is on the way. I remember one year in PA, there was a week of 90+ temps in April and the mercury never again reached 90 the entire year. When it got so hot in April, many people were thinking that summer was going to be extremely hot, but it didn't play out that way. Over the past 21 months, the mean temp is almost 2 degrees above normal. I'm thinking we're due for a spell of cool weather to balance things out. There is always a trend in the opposite direction to balance things out, unless of course hot and dry is the new normal, brought to all of us by climate change.

We can only hope we won't have to deal with future droughts. I always hate the thought of having to leave my home state because we no longer are able to live here because of the lack of water.

No, I don't want 70 degrees. I'm already seeing mosquitoes here and NOT ready for the 100+ degrees every single day this summer here.

Well, here is Gunbarrel we now have more snow on the ground from this unmentioned storm than we did after the "blizzard" this past weekend. If anyone wants a job with no expectations, just go into meteorology.

Jim.....I saw a few mosquitos more than a month ago, hiking on the Tabagauche trail. Like you, I'm not looking forward to the 100 degree crap. Maybe we'll luck out with a cool summer this year. Meanwhile, IF the temp should hit 70 later this week, I will enjoy it to the hilt. Hard to beat 70 degree weather! In my book, that is close to the perfect temperature.
