Walter, I don't think there is such a thing as a "normal" iris year. But some
really pessimistic climatologists have been saying lately that what we've been
getting now IS normal, and the past few decades have been unreasonably nice.
Hmm. And I thought the weather was better in my childhood only because my
memory is getting more selective.
Barb, in Santa Fe, and okay, spring was never very nice, even in my childhood

Ugh! I just saw the weekend weather forecast for Memphis - 35o
for Sunday morning. I will pray for wind so it won't frost.
When are we going to have a 'normal' iris year, or is there such a
thing? If so, when was the last one?
