Here in East Tennessee it was bitter cold, then last week was beautiful, and now it is supposed to rain for quite a while. That sounds like spring to me.

Now to decide when to plant a garden, and hope that there is no surprise late freeze, as often happens.
What this shows is that the Republican Party knows, deep down somewhere, that even before Trump they had less than a policy agenda. All they’ve had for the past decade or so is strategy and tactics to suppress the vote, either through extreme gerrymandering or State-level laws. More often than not, as we’re seeing, through both. Without a stated party platform they are left with nothing but the insanity of The Power Grab and The Big Lie. The Party as a whole has, for some twisted logical reason, decided that America no longer needs Democracy. That in the bent and tortured reality Republicans have created for themselves America was never a Democracy, the Founders never intended for the country’s politics or social order to change, that the country’s democratic features would always only extend to wealthy White Christian property owners. They’ve also, collectively, decided that threatening major, multi-billion dollar corporations that employ tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people worldwide will somehow, for some reason, cower in the corner when State politicians decide to take a few million in subsidies off the table. When faced with hundreds of millions, or even billions, in lost business because The People are voting with their wallet, I know where I’d position my company, and it’s not at the dinner table with Mitch McConnell and his wife.

I just came back from a nice walk in the park, sunny but cold wind was cooling my head. Very pleasing.

The best weather is 9 C (48 F for lunatics) with clear skies and full sun. Perfect t-shirt weather. Anything more is too hot, too far below that and you might need a sweater.

last I remember he doesn't live relatively far from it as it is, lol. 
IMO 15-23c is the perfect temp, but being I'm used to the soggy heat here in Georgia, US would be why.  When I visit friends and family in MA, I always get to hear them complain when it gets in the upper set of what I find comfortable.

No, it's pretty much that weather here right now (when the skies are clear xD).

Of course, this is assuming you're actually doing something. If you're just sitting still outside, a bit higher is acceptable.

Well, that was my point. "Everybody" glories in the weather around the equinoxes, but you are setting up to be miserable for most of the next half year.

It's not my choice that the weather is generally backwards! :p Most of the year it's just too hot!

It was just as hot here at the same time, and I'm sweating my balls off. It shouldn't be this hot outside, ever xD .
