Here Comes Spring

Tomorrow (Thursday) is the first official day of spring. Of course, no one around here really counts on good weather until after Memorial weekend. But we couldn't help but enjoy the gorgeous sunshine today. It was almost 50! That's the thing about living in Wisconsin. The winters are cold and you can get sick of all the snow, but the summers more than make up for it, in my opinion.

I grew up in those sweltering, humid summers, and I much prefer the lovely Wisconsin weather that time of year. When it hits low 90s here, people start complaining.

I'm sure we'll have a few more freezing cold days before the nice, warm weather gets here, but I love these little sprinkles of spring. Today, Jack asked me where he could find the flowers, but I had to tell him they weren't here yet. Then he asked me if we could get his pool out so he could swim outside. I had to explain that we would first have to wait for ALL the snow to melt, not just some of it.

Ahhh, spring! And then comes summer!

I, too, totally enjoy the cooler summers and the actual Spring and Fall we get. Our next door neighbor told us that it gets more humid here than in Texas! I held in the laughter, but I gleefully share the story.

Your neighbor is nuts.
