- I'm in southern lower Michigan. We have had a rather cold winter but the days are definitely getting longer and I have seen robins and the birds are singing their spring songs (sweet!) and according to the weather man we will be in the mid-30s by the end of next week :) I'm remembering a few snow storms in our area in May too but usually we are snow-less, cold but without snow by mid-May.
- I'm not sure where you're located, but the horses here in Alberta are starting to shed as well. *knock on wood* that Spring is around the corner and we don't get any freak snowstorms in like May - which isn't terribly common here, but certainly not unheard of.

This is a good clue to solving the problem. When I have had students with this problem, I generally...Liked On: 06-25-2014, 06:12 PM
