I know what you mean...I'm tired of winter too.
I am so glad yesterday was 80...
but the temp today was back to 60, crap.
Have to wait for Friday to get in the 70's again.

I'm still in winter mode so don't mind the snow and cold right now. I probably won't see anything in the 60s until April.

High pressure systems and inversion layers suck equally as much.
