    I am ready for Spring because I'm sick to death of this Winter which has been the warmest, most rainy one I ever experienced. You damned lousy Winter totally failed - so get the fuc* out of my valley!!!

    And my 91 years old mother is ready for Spring because she is pining for her garden. She is still recovering from a more than three weeks lasting severe bronchitis triggered by the weather conditions mentioned above.

    This has been a miserable winter. I have two pipes that busted underneath my house from the extreme cold!

    We're still waiting for WINTER down here. Temps have been 6-10 degrees F above average, only a couple of freezing nights, and it's been very dry even for southern AZ. Very nice for tourists, but if this continues, spring will be like summer. We had big monsoon rains in July, then the pattern moved east to New Mexico, and we've been short of moisture since. Large brush fires from time to time (not near me). Rain finally coming this evening and next couple of days, may bring us back to average moisture.

    Spring is a wonderful, a beautiful season. The Hot Pants in the streets will return...

    Kidding aside - I know that a lot of you folks suffered from a very hard Winter and you are longing for the first warm sun rays on your faces. However, since Winter is my favourite season (and I actually feel cheated by this one) I would enjoy the forthcoming season more if there would have been a preciser discrimination between Winter and Spring in our region.

    Mid-March marks the start of migration season. Looking forward to getting out in the fresh air at a wildlife refuge down on the Mississippi flyway. Also my workbench sits on a concrete floor in the unheated basement, so electronic repair/DIY is strictly a three-season activity.

    I can't wait to get my Cougar back out. I only paid for storage through March 1, so I have to get it out in a couple weeks no matter what the weather is doing, lol.

    Yep, 1985 Cougar XR-7 Turbo. Here it is along with my 1985 turbo-swapped Plymouth Voyager :)

    In 1984 my dad had a Cougar XR-7 non-turbo.....at least I'm pretty sure it was non-turbo!

    In 1984-1986 all XR-7s were turbo. The Non-XR-7 models were either 3.8 v6 or 5.0 v8.

    I wasn't sure....but now that you mention it it was the 5.0 V8.

    Yes, I'm ready for spring. This winter has been cold and snowy, but it has warmed up just above freezing shortly after every snowfall, followed by extreme cold. The net result being crusty, icy snow that's not really good for doing anything. I like to get out cross country skiing, but this year has been crap.

    As far as what I'm looking forward to? Gardening and playing with my kids in the backyard. They're finally old enough (8 y.o.) to not be afraid of the ball and really got into baseball last summer. They've been telling me they're looking forward to playing this summer.

    I'm looking forward to getting my 67 Belair back on the road though the mountain of snow sliding off of it during a warm spell had almost totally mangled my drivers side wiper arm. If I have to replace it, it might be tough to find. ;) The other thing I can't wait for is for my local golf course to open up. I've got a few new clubs I'm just Jonesing to hit.

    Super good looking!
    We built a deck ourselves off the second story three years ago.
    Though it was great from day one, the addition of a couple zero gravity chairs made it a destination.
    Golf is my thing. Love it. Helping the local HS golf team out this year and can’t wait to get them out on the course.
