It happens every year

Winter turns to spring.

The sun shines.

The flowers bloom.

The flip flops…uh…flop.

It’s 70 and 80 degrees in the shade all week.

Two weeks even.

So you wash all the coats, the hats and the mittens, even the scarves because you’re just that good.

You put it all away for next winter.

You go through all the summer clothes and hang them up.

And then, when you’re finished, you wake up and it’s 40 degrees outside. With rain.

Thankfully, your kids don’t care.

They continue to wear shorts even when it’s 43 degrees. And when you even dare suggest that they should wear a jacket, they scoff at you and say,

“Why? It’s not cold out.”

    That sounds like me right now. I was doing a little Spring cleaning and put away the boots and mittens and hats, etc. Then we got 14 inches of snow. Two weeks of warm, snow goes away (replaced with mud of course)…bam, 12 inches of snow. Warms up again, more mud. Now we are expecting more snow. I wish it would make up it’s mind.

    Snow is worse though. At least I didn’t have to get the coats back out.

    This morning C said, “It’s cold everyday! I don’t know why!”

    It’s supposed to be 67 degrees today though, so I doubt we’ll get snow again this year.

    Don’t be so sure. Last week on Wednesday it got up to 80. By Saturday we had a foot of snow on the ground. I have learned to NEVER say that we won’t get any more snow!
