Spring


Mona suggests today's word shall be spring. What a nice idea. It is April 6, snowing, and 15 degrees. This is where you say 'global warming means crazy weather', although it is a rare April in northern NY that does not see snow. But still.

The "normal" high for today is 10C in Kingston, Gary. The forecast is for -1C today. It's -% now, but it's sunny!

I remember April 7, 1971, the day before my fifth birthday. We had to drive 300 miles from Iowa to Chicago, and almost 2 feet of driving snow came down that day. I remember having a dollar from my uncle, and I was excited because I was able to go to a store and choose a cookie monster book!
The next day was 72 degrees and sunny and I was wearing shorts on my birthday. Incredible, but it happens!

I been looking for 'normal' for nigh-on seventy years now. Still haven't found it.

You see, John and everybody, it is that roll of the dice that makes spring so much fun. How could somebody live in Hawaii or San Diego which always has nice weather? Or the south of France, how can they stand it? The sun, the flowers, the mild breezes....
oh, wait.....

I was in Victoria BC, around Christmas for work about 10 years ago. I was having a great time and day dreaming about moving there. Until I saw the Christmas lawn ornaments on bare, dormant lawns. It was depressing.

Is that the unicorn tattoo you got recently?

The heck with it Gord, it has been snowing off and on all day, I wouldn't mind some warmth. Mona, remember that chic riding the unicorn yesterday? I got HER tattooed to my arm.

Bridget's birthday was yesterday. She wasn't pleased to get snow for a present. The boys and I made it all good with an 11am sleep-in and a frosted lemon-cake with dinner. It's still snowing, but she doesn't mind so much any more. :-D

sounds nice Gordo, and sure, I wouldn't mind a little lemon cake Sunday morning
