OK~ Weird weather...or is it just the fact that we are all tired of Winter? Tornados all over the United States, snow/ice in the Mid-West and the calendar says April 16th. We spent the day in the great outdoors at a high school trapshooting meet, right across the Iowa border in Southern Minnesota. The roads between here and there had the word "January" all over them! I don't even want to think of what the wind chill was. A high of a whopping 35 degrees and winds whipping up to 35-40 mph at times...So, what's the deal with Spring?
What would be wrong with Spring arriving in April, not March? And, at least in Iowa, our temps really don't get too hot until July....So, Summer could arrive in July! Oh yeah....and Fall could arrive in October! And Old Man Winter~ I really don't think he should even have a place on the calendar....I'm thinking if he did not even have a slot on the calendar, he wouldn't arrive?!
Is it that I'm getting older and just dislike colder weather, or is it that I just need to accept Mother Nature and roll with her? I guess I'll have to accept the latter of the two....Get used to the cold weather and just maybe warmer weather will arrive soon! I know our farmers sure need some warmer weather...that corn and soybean crop will be mighty important to all of us~ Gotta love an Iowa farmer! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
