    I realize this reads like I would be leading to a joke. Nope I am genuinely interested in how the weather is where you are. Here in West Virginia (USA) mother nature must be off her rocker. We are generally already in full swing with getting my garden going.

    We are still getting frost, dipping down to 20 degrees (F) or below. Rain, Rain, and more rain and a random snow flurry here or there.
    Cabin fever is setting in, I don't know the last time I saw any sunshine. My weather app had me cracking up as my forecast was 'dark'. I just want to plant, and grow things-hopefully soon.

    How is your weather? Is it odd and unseasonable like mine? Or are you enjoying your normal weather and temperature patterns for this type of year.

      I'm in North Carolina, and I don't really know what the weather is usually like here. I've been here going on two years. The latest winter was mild compared to the first winter I was here. Only one measurable snow, and rarely dipping into the 20s. Spring has been lovely, pleasant temperatures and plenty of rain, but no more than seems usual around here.

      NJ is cold and wet with frost nearly every night.  It should be high 60s/low 70s.  Instead my furnace is still running to combat 40s/50s.

      In Kenya we're currently in the rainy season. But, the days are moderately sunny. It's excellent weather for me, because I love the rain.

        I love the rain too especially if I am indoors and enjoying a cup of coffee or tea.

        We experience a lot of flooding here. Rain, and storms I used to enjoy. Until we moved, now we often get stuck for up to a week at a time with rains.

    Come to the UK.  Unusually for spring the sky is blue, the sun is shining and it is warm!

      That sounds lovely! Normally we have a similar spring, this year I feel like we are getting a second winter!

    That is where we should be too as far as temperature. But heats still running here too. Foretasted snow next week too. Hopefully as a consolation prize for this second winter we get a not so hot/humid summer!

    No one talks much about the weather here since it is pretty much the same all year round. We are in fall now so it is a little cooler. I get up in the mornings about 5:30 to work since it is only in the 70s. By about 9 it is too hot to do much.
    One of the benifits of year-round heat is an extended gardening season. No one puts up hay here but my horses and sheep always have plenty of pasture. One of the bad things about year-round heat is bugs. They come out about 5:30 in the evening, the the dragonflies and bats come out after that.
    As I was writing this I realized I did not have any photos of my bats in the belfry (water tower, actually), so I went and took a few pictures.

      Wow! I can't imagine not putting up hay! But it sounds like a mixed blessing. The photo is actually adorable. We do see bats a lot in the evening when weather is warm too.

      I'm beginning to wonder if I'm going to see any warm weather anytime soon. It's a bit of a bummer for my six year old. He'd rather be outside than in.

        I think there are about 50 living in that tower. I could get rid of them but each bat eats hundreds of mosquitoes every night, so I can only imagine how terrible things would be without them.
        Hopefully things will warm up for your son. I had a bunch of kids over here today to visit Kesha, one of my mares. I think they are all happy about the lockdown/no school situation. No internet classes around here, so I guess they are all just going to lose this year.

          My son is in kindergarten no real 'schooling' going on no internet classes for them. They are pointing us to public 'learning' websites and have us going over sight words. Apparently they are going to 'give' them the same grades they had last semester. With the intentions of doing a brush up to catch them up to speed if need be when they move on to first grade.

          My son has been in the high group all year. So I have him doing education apps set to first grade. So while school is out for the rest of the year for everyone else. This mom is making this kid learn anyway.

          We leave the bats alone here for the same reason. We are in a clearing with woods all around and they all come out of the trees at night. I don't mind at all, they do keep the mosquitoes population down a good bit.

    In the Great White North spring has maddeningly refused to show up on schedule. We had one day of plus 22 last weekend but there's talk of snow flurries tonight. Of course, this is typical for the time of year in southern Ontario. Soon, we'll be complaining about the heat and mosquitoes.

      That's usually how folks are around here too. Complaining one way or the other about weather. I don't mind the heat personally I prefer it to extreme cold.
