Oh, wait, were you ever here? Here is what the hedges at at my park and ride parking lot looked like on the last day of Winter. We have have flowers blooming for months and pollen is everywhere. (Why does my voice recognition software interpret with the word pollen as "porn"?)
Apparently, we have had the mildest Winter ever. I wish we had some colder weather. I really envy you all that had a real Winter.
For everyone bemoaning snow, just be glad you are not suffering our early allergy season with record-breaking pollen levels.
