My brother-in-law called the other day and told me it was 80 degrees in Rhode Island. It's so unfair. It's not even close to 80 degrees here. In fact, on Saturday the coldest place in the 48-continental states? Redmond, Oregon. Oregon is definitely not the place to be this week for spring weather.
Today was my last day of teaching classes (hello summer vacation!), and when class ended, my students had to wander out into the pouring down rain as I called after them, "Have a good summer!" They didn't think that was very funny.
I'm not the only one who thinks it's too cold around here. A little visitor this morning confirmed my suspicions that, despite it nearing the end of April, it is far too cold outside.
Hello there, little bird! Come to try on Sydney's winter boots?
What's that? You had other ideas for the boots?
Yes, they are quite warm! Why do you ask?
Oh, I totally understand. Take all you need.
*sigh* Hang in there. I'm sure warmer weather is right around the corner.
Happy summer vacation to me!
