Spring, Where ARE You?

“Is it ever going to warm up?” one of my fellow riders asked as we boarded the bus this morning.

I’m beginning to think that it’s not. The past few mornings have had us back in the teens. That wouldn’t be so hard to take – except that it got up to 55 on Saturday. It’s amazing to me how it takes just a single nice day to transform me back into a winter wimp! And it really has done that. I very nearly could not get out of bed this morning. I was just too comfy and warm.

At least I’m not alone in my zealous anticipation of spring. I’ve even heard people who supposedly like cold weather express their desire for it to finally end this year.

We’re supposed to reach the lower 40s over the weekend and no one is speaking of rain, much less snow, anytime soon so I guess I can find consolation in that. Again, I don’t know how all of you who got monstrous loads of snow this year managed to cope. I think that if we’d had to deal with THAT, I might well have just run off to the Caribbean!

I always beg you to come visit me when you post about the colder weather, but not this time. We're finally making it UP INTO the 40s this week. We had more flurries today (barely any to even notice though) and winds that will gust up to 60 MPH tonight. Stupid groundhog was right.

I am SO ready for spring! It doesn't help that the weather people on TV keep posting "interesting" statistics like how many days in a row we've had snow on the ground, or how many times this year we've been below normal seasonal temps.

V -- You sure do, and one of these days, you just never know ... but for right now, no offense, I'm afraid I'm only too happy to be right where I am. :-)

Jayne -- Me, too! We're supposed to get near 60 over the weekend. I sure hope they're right!
