May-haps? or May-hem? We'll see.
April froze a lot. Just yesterday the bird bath was iced over. Yesterday was sunny, though bright, blustery and cool. This morning was cold and wind and rain and I wished I had my gloves when I ran out for errands.
But by noon, omigosh, it was hot! And humid. And uncomfortable - in that 180 turn that Ma Nature is fond of these days. So I checked the long-range and gee. Our last frost date is traditionally May 18. But these temps are June temps, mostly. The 10th may dip low enough to frost - maybe.
Otherwise -- tra la, it's May (well, close enough for government work!).
So I have done something, rather rash. I usually keep the leaky front bay window taped up with plastic well into May (especially LAST May, brrrr!). But I was seduced by the warmth, the sunshine, and accuweather to get on with this annual chore.
I peeled off the plastic. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. The view through it is probably like looking through a cataract.
But look! Now everything is bright and clear and shiny! Yay! :-D
*pant* Gosh, it's even too hot for jeans. I'm switching to shorts. Oh dear. Suddenly I'm bang into another seasonal chore. Now where did I leave that razor.... ;-/
P.S. Here's some other (less racy) seasonal news.
