I generally declare it gone when the geese arrive, even if its still snowing but I don't really get worked-up about anything until it stops freezing hard at night.

70+ degrees here in Seattle over the last few days. I've got my first open water swim of the year planned for Sunday.

It ain't over yet!!

It's supposed to snow tonight ... right now it is +5C and raining so snow is indeed quite likely. And tomorrow's high is +1C.

i tried to declare this last week, and then yesterday, i rode to work in shorts and a longsleeved jersey.. it was pleasant at about 65 degrees when i left for work but then over the course of my day it dropped 20 degrees and the wind picked up (headwond, of course).

i actually had to go to the nearest lbs and buy a base layer or i wouldnt have made it home. i was more uncomfortable by virtue of bein under dressed than i was on the coldest sub zero days this winter where i was layered appropriately

Parts of Wisconsin got a couple of inches last night. To be perfectly honest, I miss winter already.
