Default Spring??????

Does anybody else think that spring might actually be here now?

We had storms roll through the last couple weeks, but warm during the day, snow during the night. Sure sign of spring in Wyoming.

I'm about ready to pull the "Winter Weather Alerts" and put up a "Summer Weather Alerts". I won't delete it, just take it off sticky so new users can always do a search and see what "Last winter" was like.

Now the big decision. Is it time to pull the plow off the 4 wheeler and change the tires over to my steel belted radial street tires?

We are seeing spring here in the North/Central area below the Big Horns. The ***** willow is blowing up big buds. Grass was green when the snow melted and we could see it again.

Now we have to prepare for spring rains, with high winds. We'll have to walk careful while leaning.

I'm glad to hear things are warming up. I hesitate to say anything in this forum about how nice April is where I live now, because I know how tired you all are of the snow up there in Wyoming. But I'm glad to hear signs of spring are showing.

You will soon be enjoying glorious summer weather up there while we are melting in the heat down here.

Spring is here, alright. I wouldn't remove that plow for awhile yet. Spring just means the snow will be heavy and deep!

Been virtual heat waves at times out there i've seen; relatively good swings in temp and such. Snow comes and goes in span of a day generally huh? EH's area in bit lower valleys anyway.

Good to see it's breakin' up some from the freezer..........LOL.

Kind of a catch 22. I want to switch out the tires to the street tires because this dry pavement is wearing out the knobby's quick. But if I switch out to common street tires, what good is the plow?

Woke up to a bit more snow on the ground at my daughter's in Cody today, but it quickly melted into a beautiful day! Coming over the Big Horns it looked like some fresh snow the past few days, but the roads were good!
