The 2017 Sprinter/Spring Thread
« on: February 11, 2017, 11:29:07 AM »
Since it is increasingly looking like we are due for an early spring (we can call it sprinter till at least March 1st) it is time to start the thread

60's & 70's next weekend will make it feel like spring for sure. Neighbors already mowing yards today.  My yard is greening up quickly.

It is already starting for me. Allergy issues usually don't pick up till March for me.

In addition to early allergies--I've noticed mosquitos already out.  I went walking along the Pigeon River this morning, and I saw swarms of them along the river.  That doesn't bode well for the summer season.

Flonase has been my savior. It works wonderfully as a preventer.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

Oh believe me.  I do flonase daily. Along with an Allegra tablet.  It still doesn't get me through the worst of spring.

I have to admit, I'm enjoying this mild February weekend in shorts and a t-shirt out on the deck far more than I did the weather of July-October last year.  It does feel good outside, and I'm not a fan of the type of dry heat we had last Summer and Fall.

Currently 78 with a heat index of 80 at MEM. Many Redbuds and other flowering trees are in full bloom. I definitely fear for an Easter 2007 repeat.

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

I believe it's a state record high for February.

That doesn't even seem possible.  Has this been verified?
