I hadn’t looked at the weather predictions for a few days—had heard sort of vague notions that it’s supposed to be “nice” this weekend. So, imagine my surprise when I looked at this, this morning:
This is the 5 day forecast for my part of the world. Now we’ve had upper 70s and low 80s occasionally over the last few weeks, which has had some of us scratching our heads, considering that it’s only March. But the Saturday and Sunday forecast? Is this an April Fools’ joke by the Weather Channel? 91? On April 1? In Nebraska?
Maybe it’s payback for the 4 months of cold and snow we had 2 years ago. Or maybe the other shoe is going to drop.
Our lilacs—which usually start blooming the end of April—our starting to burst out in color. Daffodils have already pretty well finished their blooming.
I’m not complaining—I like spring (although 90 degrees is much more like summer, which I’m not so keen about). But I remember, back in 1987, when my husband was graduating from medical school, and we were looking for a new apartment the last few days of March and the first of April: SNOW. LOT’S of snow. So much, in fact, that as we were driving around Omaha looking for places inhabit, that we ended up getting stranded at a friend’s place out in one of the suburbs of Omaha, because we couldn’t make it back to our midtown apartment near the medical center…
What’s it like in other parts of the world? Has South Carolina reached 100 with 100% humidity, yet? Are the tulips blooming in Michigan?
