Weather in East Tennessee can be dramatically different day to day, and year to year.

Last year on March 25, people wore tank tops outside and listened to music in Krutch Park.

Temperatures reached a high of 71 degrees.

This year, pockets of flurries fell in Knoxville all day.

"Oh I hate it. It's terrible. We're ready for spring. We were teased a couple weeks ago," said Beth Farrow, in Downtown Knoxville.

Even though most of the snow has already melted, people are yearning for warmer days.

"We haven't had a whole lot of snow this year. I kind of like the snow a little bit but I'm ready for spring," said George Scott.

This time last year, flowers were in full bloom at Fountain City's Dogwood Trail.

"We had some beautiful flowers and plants blooming out this time last year. It was great. It was sunny. It was warm," Scott said.

His neighbor, Tim Helton, went on to say, "Just the other day I was having my mulch spread and everything and I was planning on mowing the yard this weekend."

Helton should be able to mow his law this weekend, as warmer temperatures are expected.

"That's just East Tennessee though, you never know what to expect," Farrow said.

Scott went on to say, "Come enjoy beautiful Tennessee, changes every 5 minutes."
