Screw you, spring!

I am refusing to give in to this beautiful weather we are having.  I know it's a trick.  A mind fuck to get us to think that it will be blue skies and 70 degrees so that we pack away all our cold weather gear - just in time for the temperature to slip back into the 30s.

To throw spring off, I am pretending to enjoy it.  I've opened the windows, worn short sleeves, gone for long walks at lunch time.  Hell, I've even admired the cherry blossoms and daffodils that line my commute (side note: Thanks, Lady Bird Johnson, for beautifying America's roadways!)  However, I know that this won't last and I'm keeping the coats, scarves, and gloves around.  Spring can suck up to me in mid-April.


  1. I had the thought yesterday that only in Colorado would I be putting flip flops out next to the snow boots.

  2. Screw you, spring, for arriving prior to my first ski trip in 10 years.
