The weather is unpredictable here in March. Huge snowstorm, then sunny, then rain...two weeks until Spring.

What was it Schnozzle Durante said?

"Der Spring has sprung,
Der gras has riz,
I wonders where der boidies iz?
Der little boids iz on der wing,
Hey, dat's absoid"
Der little wings is on der boid!"

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

"They" say that March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb. But it feels more like a roller coaster. Forget checking the forecast on TV; just look outside.

From a quick search of it on Google, it looks like it was posted a year or so ago, but still brilliant!

A saying here in Michigan is, "If you don't like the weather, stick around an hour and it will change". However, I have heard that several other states have the same saying, and I've heard of other countries who use the same saying.

With climate change, all predictions for future weather don't seem to mean very much. Seems like we have to find a way to be ready for anything.

Why would anyone build a wind turbine that can't cope with common wind speeds in that location? http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2013/04/ ... 0mph-wind/

Mid 80's F here in Roseville, California today. That's 10 degrees warmer than usual for this time of year. Time for golf and a swim.

First week-end since mid-March without snow in the forecast. This has been the coldest April since 1975 with daytimes highs hovering around 4-6°C. Yesterday was a lovely 19°. Perhaps this never-ending Winter is coming to a close. It started in October with a sudden blast of deep cold and snow...many trees are now just dropping the dead leaves and the Fall clean-up is looooong overdue.

Global warming? Sounds more like the next Ice Age up there, Alan C.!
