We could use an early Spring here.
Well here's hoping you get it... and soon. I've seen some coverage on various news programs and it looks pretty harsh right across the board, It looks unpleasant to say the least. I saw some harsh Winters when I was a kid in England, but usually by late Feb early March things had begun to warm up some and life started to get back to normal/easier..
This year is also producing unseasonal weather there in the UK as well, what with storms, flooding and cold snaps. That's why my mother returned to Australia, partly to escape the bitter Winters, but also to be closer to family and set up home for herself and Dave, her new/now husband, who followed her over shortly after in December, just before the worst of it hit where they lived.
Oh yeah, if anybody gives you one of these for your birthday, take it back to the breeders cos they cut costs and left bits out.
