Is anyone else seriously thinking about moving from Minnesota after this winter/spring?? These "twenty degrees below normal" days are starting to get a little annoying and depressing. They are forecasting temperatures in the mid-60s next week - I will keep my fingers crossed. I nice sunny and rainy summer (no drought please) would make up for this late spring.

On the bright side, we have a current solid and prosperous economy to cheer us up . . .

Yes, this is so dreary.....I want some sun and dry days to feel like a human being again. Until then, hang in there. I don't have as much optimism for the economy at the moment.

Where should we go? I've just been reading posts from the hosta forum and some other BB's and many people in zones 6 & 7 have things up and growing and are getting freezing temps right now. Sooo as much as I feel like banging my head against a brick wall I'm telling myself that at least the tender stuff isn't going to freeze cause hey the ground is still semi-frozen. Trying to look at the bright side! The economy... well I'm still looking for a bright side.

I left Florida 4 weeks ago and came back. It was hot-and-sunny every day. But I missed Minnesota. Dumb and dumber.
