Oh, this crazy weather…
I believe Mother Nature is slightly confused on what season it is. The weather we have been having is just crazy.
Is it winter? Is it spring?
Is it summer? Is it fall?
Does anyone have the answer to these questions? I think it is all of the above.
One day it is 80 degrees and then the next day it is somewhere in between and then the next day it is 30 degrees.
One day I am wearing sweaters and boots and looking for my gloves. The next day I am toting my umbrella and a box a tissues for spring rain and spring allergies.
Oh, those dreaded spring allergies!
I have already seen “Easter Lilies” in bloom, but yet the forecast shows some snow showers in the near future for us. Not to worry there should not be any accumulation of the white stuff according to the forecast.
As for our February weather, we should have seen cold temperatures with some snow in the forecast. I know I am talking crazy!
We should not have been pondering whether we should be turning our air conditioning on this past month unless you live in Florida or Texas.
The good thing about the mild winter is the heating bill expense was not as high as normal.
However, if it is this warm now, what can we expect in July and August?
I for one am not a fan of the heat index being as high as the actual temperature outside. This makes for a miserable summer.
With everyday being a different season I guess we have all had the chance to enjoy our favorite season all winter long.
