Crazy Weather

I'm no expert on the weather in New England (I just play one on TV), but the weather has been crazy and unpredictable, to say the least. It seemed like winter was long, cold and snowy and didn't seem to want to let go, then it just leap-frogged past spring and into summer. We had several days of 80 degree temperatures in April before things finally cooled off. Then it got hot again with not much in the way of rain, so much so that they banned all bonfires because conditions were too dry. Temps were hovering in the high 70s, and now it's cooled off to the 50s again. How crazy is that? I'll take the cooler temps, though there have been some beautiful, albeit warm, days.

We've finally gotten the rain we needed though it didn't seem to last very long, but enough to moisten the dry conditions and get that beautiful bright green color going on the trees that makes spring so special. I'm hoping it stays cool so I can do more work outside, like mow the lawn and split that massive wood pile that is calling my name every day.

Sometimes a real-man's (in training) work is never done. Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to fromky for the pic.
