Baby It's Cold Outside

It may look pretty, all these shrubs bursting with blooms and berrybuds, the green tunnel of foliage, the soft light of an overcast day, but I'm starting to be seriously affected by this unseasonably cold Spring.  I have had one day of good weather here or there to prune the tunnel of pink honeysuckle, to gather the clippings and dispose of them before the rain comes again.  I should be happy for all this rain.  It means I'll have to water less than usual, since the trees are soaking it up. The weather forecast may be pretty good for a week, but two days into it, it turns to unforecast cold, unforecast rain, unforecast snow, as if the weatherperson is just guessing moment to moment and is surprised by it all. It's impossible to make plans to party or work outside.  Or, if plans have been made, to dress appropriately for the possibility of rain, or snow.  You can start the day with the sun shining, wearing shorts and a sleeveless shirt only to be searching for a warm sweater by midday when the storm clouds roll in with a very chill wind scatters napkins and paper plates across the yard, foiling one more attempt to have a barbeque and a beer in the gazebo.  So far, the gazebo has gone unused.  The cold puddles of rain water have never evaporated this Spring and are probably breeding pools for mosquitos to plague me all Summer long.

I have weather whiplash.  The sun is shining now, but it's 55 degrees outside and the space heater is chugging away beside my bed and I sit here typing in winter clothes.

Cold pisses me off too... the old broad on outside that is me feels it sharply. The real me is all right with just about anything... nice shots Peggy.

for us this year it is the wind. incessant and gusting up to near hurricane speeds. it dies down to nothing just to fool you for a few hrs then kick back in again with vengeance. every friggin day.

keep reminding yourself while you're enduring this unseasonable coolness of how oppressing the heat will be soon.

I'm hoping a late summer start means it'll stay summery further into fall. That'd be nice.

hey is that roscoe?

Yes that is the handsome Roscoe.

DK, one of the things that's horrible about this cold is in one day it will go from a high in the low fifties to a low in the hight nineties. And then we'll have weeks of days over 100. And we'll be parched.

The husband just visited his Daddy in Ohio, it was 90 & muggy humid, he is happy to be back in cool rainy Oregon.
Weather! Ya gets what ya gets!

Its fairly decent down here in South Carolina except for the lack of rain. Could use a couple of good rainy days.

We had a very cold winter and if what my granddad said is true we the summer will be very hot.
