Since there hasn’t been much winter this season (here in KC, we are in track to beat the least snowiest winter ever), spring is already trying to get going! Our crocuses began blooming in late January which is about three months early; the buds in the roses are just starting to leaf out and the grass is getting greener, also. This stuff didn’t happen last year until March and April. And the birds! For the past week or so, I’ve been waking up to chirping and whistling, but the first birds started two to three weeks ago. This is also about a month early! Unless the AO and NAO suddenly go negative together and unleash a late winter blast on the US, I’d say a very early spring is in store!
