I'm wondering about voles here too- they've already had the shelter of snowcover for almost 5 months, and some time to go yet!
We didn't get nearly as warm as forecast today, only around/just above the freezing mark, Lori's area was much warmer though..
I wish we had some members in Lethbridge, Alberta- seems they've barely had daytimes below the freezing mark this winter- really curious what gardening is like there- more like Denver? or..?

Well, we have barely had daytime temperatures above the freezing mark this winter :-\ The next week is supposed to be sunny and cold - as the last week and the week before that. . . . This will probably last all April too! Some people like it though - the skaters :-X

Trond- reminds me of what we say about rainy times in summer- 'Good weather --for ducks!'
We have a 'snowfall warning' tonight- maybe up to 10 cm by morning- not sure why that much snow would need a warning, but they always give one... and we might be a bit far east for that amount (hopefully, less or no shovelling would be good!)
Our days this week are forecast from -1C t -11C and nights from -8C to -17C..

Can't say I struggle with the heat here! Although I get a bit warm when cross-country skiing in the bright sun! It's -20C during the night and -5C during the day even in the middle of a fine day here at 1000m.

April 6, 2013 Near freezing, dry and windy here, Jet Stream map tells at least part of the story.
Suggesting cold in New England, USA and Norway, maybe seasonable in the UK, particularly southern aspects. 
My added green arrows attempt to summarize the flow to New England (from Alberta), to Norway (from nearish the north pole) and UK (somewhat from the Gulf Stream)

Charles, that says it all, with our stop-and-start and stop-again spring this year.  Had a brief break yesterday, relatively warm and sunny, the crocus smiled and opened widely, then down to 26 F last night, it put the kibosh on many crocus blooms; while sunny again today way too cold for the blooms to open, many are already fading, I'm sure the strong freeze overnight curbed possibility of extended bloom.  Supposed to go down to 25 F tonight; still waiting for real spring weather.

A little change today and my evergreens got a short relief. Got some snow, sleet and rain. Hadn't thought that that kind of weather should make me happy!
Seems that the weather will improve slowly next week and the frosty nights come to an end.
