Dear Spring: Quit Being Mean.

So far today, we have had:

-a frost (complete with frozen birdbaths)

-sun!

-really damn cold wind

-spitty, pathetic rain

-hail

I await the plague of locusts and tsunami with great interest. It's like a frigging Weather Showcase around here.

I glance out and see sun and think Yay! I'll head outside and do some gardening. In the time it takes me to slip on sneakers and grab a hat, the sky completely clouds over and begins to toss down fat, chilly raindrops. I turn sulkily back to folding laundry, glance out two minutes later and think Yay, sun! NOW I'll head outside and garden. Aaaaaand cue the hail.

I get the distinct impression that someone is messing with me and laughing their ass off.

Someone (sniggering): Watch this, watch this... we just convinced her it's freezing and hailing, but I'm going to whip out the sun and she'll be all Woo-hoo, it's spring! Be ready with the blizzard effects as soon as I give you the signal.

I'll blog more later. It's been sunny for two and a half consecutive minutes, so I'm going out to garden! Yay!

We are having a mean spring too--though

Sorry--incomplete thought.

Though I'm sure you wouldn't find it that bad. Lots of wind and drizzle and a couple of rainy days a week. Temps in the high 50s/low 60s--this is NOT why I live in San Diego!

We're alternating between heat, rain, wind, clouds. I just wish it would make up its mind.

I get it! We sat through the most miserable football game that our youngest played with hands and feet numb but only yesterday we swam outside. It's just wrong and I don't want to play anymore.

I agree with Jenn - it is the CA version of a bad spring. I got soaked twice last week after going into a store when it was sunny and coming out in a downpour. The wind has blown all the blossoms off everything just as fast as they can bloom. We are very tired of it here in Nor Cal, too.
