Ahh, brings back memories of Utah.
Right about now, they are enjoying an Indian Summer. Warm temps, light breezes, a little rain,... NOICE!
However, and it always happens, in the first part of May it will snow. I remember cutting the lawn, mid 60's, flowers starting to open up, thinking about turning my sprinkler system on, go to bed, and wake up to six inches of snow. Heck, in Utah, I've been snowed on in August more than once. It melts quickly, but it still brings the mood down.

;) Yeah, that's when we usually have ours, too. I think Chef was speaking in general terms of the type weather there. Or, maybe they're just mixed up in Utaw and Chef got confused while living there. Sometimes therapy helps.

We have the opposite of cold here in Washington. The temps are hitting 70 degrees F, there will probably be no rainstorms for the next few weeks, and my outdoor cp's (three pots) are already drying up. To save water I put the pots on next to an east facing wall so hopefully they'll dry up slower even though almost the top inch is "crispy" already. But for now they're fine except once summer hits I either take them inside or water them every few hours. That's how hot it is here!!!! To bad I don't live closer to the ocean.

Is anyone else in Washington having any rain right now?

Where I live, it regularly reaches 108 degrees in the summertime. And I don't even live in the desert...
At those temperatures, I have to bring all my CPs into the shade. That amount of heat, intense sunlight, and lack of humidity means that any plant left out will be fried to a crisp.
