Weather Woes

I have a serious love-hate relationship with spring. I love when the sun begins to stay out longer, a pleasantly warm breeze drifts through my windows (that I’m finally able to keep open), flowers blooming and birds chirping. There is nothing more breathtaking than seeing the mountains against a bright blue and clear North Carolina sky. Then, the rain begins. I swear, it feels like it goes on forever! I know, I know-April showers bring May flowers. Honestly, though, I could really do without the rain. I would never survive in the Pacific Northwest.

Of course, there are also days like today. I woke up and it was, once again, raining on my day off. Not only was it raining, it was starting to get very windy and very cold. So cold, in fact, that it started snowing. It’s the middle of freaking April! WHY is it snowing?!

Stupid spring! Teasing me with awesome mid 70’s and sunshine, then BAM! Mid 30’s and snow. I’m so over it.
