Apparently you Northerners haven't heard about the Easter Snap. Down where I'm from, you never plant your garden until Good Friday, regardless of when it appears on the calendar. The weather may warm up and tease you, but until The Easter Snap arrives, winter isn't officially over in my book. Anybody here want to venture a guess when Easter is this year. That's right, way out there in April.
BTW, I hate the cold. Give me 95F and 65% humidity any day over 35F and 65% humidity. I don't care what they say, I can't put on enough layers to stay warm. I can however shuck off all my clothes and jump into the creek and cool off if I want to.
