Anyone else tired of cold weather?

Its SPRING. Why won't the weather act like it? On the first day of Spring in WV it snowed. I really just wanna go out and brush my horse in nice weather. I do brush her in the cold, but I don't really enjoy brushing her when the wind is biting and the ground is muddy. I would just like to know where Spring is and why it isn't in WV yet.

P.S. As I write this it is 25 degrees outside and windy. Sorry for my mini rant. Feel free to rant about the weather in your area!

No. We need more snow or we will not have the water we need this summer for hay, grass or drinking.

I don't like being cold, but I like being thirsty even less. Animals suffered last year. I'd rather they didn't this year.

Same here in the UK it is cold and wet and miserable when it should be mild and Springlike, the grass should be growing and the mud should be drying...

It's not cold in East Texas, 60 degrees as I write. The pollen is AWFUL! Everything is green, green, green and not green with growth. Even the dirt is green. We really need a rain to wash this crap away.

I'm horseless at the moment, but I used to have to go and wipe my horses nostrils out at least 2x a day during pollen season. I do have to do the dogs. Poor things, everyone of them has a "green" cast to their coats.

I can't wait until this winter crap finally gives up. I work construction and and it's cold as hell out here. My mare started shedding lightly a couple weeks ago but since the cold wont ease up she seems to have stopped lol I know it's not possible to reverse it but it sure seems like she has!

Honestly I was tired of the cold before winter even came. Didnt want it here and now that its here I want it gone even more.

I consider April 15th to be the official day winter ends. Its not uncommon to see snow in the first part of April. I rememeber quite a number of April Fools Day having snowed. It's also the same for the first day of fall, it can still be hot and summer-like. Just because the calendar says the first day of spring was a couple of days ago, doesn't mean mother nature will comply.

I don't mind the cold. I'd rather it be winter then summer. I'm a "warm blooded" person and summer kills me. But what I can't stand in winter is wind. Cold, fine, wind, ugh!

This is what happens when you have democrats in office
