Okay, for my local, in-real-life friends - you can skip this. For my geographically far off blog-world friends...
We have a "Damp Marine Climate". Heavy on the "damp". But usually, usually, late April and most of May are lovely. A real teaser for summer! Sunshine, warm temps, (warm being a relative term), and melanin-challenged people walking around in shorts and tank tops with goosebumps the size of road turtles. (Because, you know, we're all chronically low on Vitamin D and need to get recharged as soon as possible.)
But it's just a teaser. About the time Memorial Day rolls around, the rain comes back and we won't see much of the sun again until about the 4th of July.
Then it's summer. And it goes on well into September.
But this year is not following the pattern. Not cooperating.
No snow to play in over the winter. Plenty up in the mountains, but none down here. The winter was so mild we called it June-uary.
But now, when we should be having a lovely spring, we're not. Snow in the hills, passes closed, and this morning... 37F.
I'm just wondering what summer will be...
