I saw an open daffodil on my walk this morning!
There is bulb foliage up everywhere, of course, but I couldn't believe this guy was actually open.

We have a few hyacinths that have flowered. No daffodils or tulips yet. Most daffodils and tulips that open early can tolerate snow and freezing temps (as long as they don't get crushed or broken in half by ice). There's a daffodil called February Gold that was bred to open early, and that one in particular handles snow just fine.

We need cold weather to kill the bugs. Summer will be awful in that regard if we dont get some below freezing temps soon.

Regardless, not climate change, just a strong la nina year, though this la nina is particular powerful which could mean bad news for the cascades out west/flood watch etc. Then again those same floods are the reason why that region is so beautiful so catch 22 I suppose.

Thats weather on the 8s, back to you Tom.

P.S. A buggy summer?

It's Arctic Oscillation - just read a story on it.. La Nina is when water temperatures are cooler than normal and it's relative to the Pacific ocean, not the Atlantic.
That's not to say that La Nina doesn't impact the east coast, but in this case, it's not La Nina

Looks like we might get an inch of snow today. Or maybe it'll just turn into rain. Rain's just fine by me. I saw on the news that the stinkbug population dropped significantly due to the rain last fall.
