It's just not the same....
Ok... those who do know us and where we live will understand. For those who don't, we live in NE Wisconsin, not too far south of Green Bay (Go Pack!).
You wouldn't know it, though, by the weather we've had in the last 2 weeks. We not only had an early first 50 degree day, but we've moved on to the 60's, the 70's, and even, for the last three days, the low 80's... and its only March 18th!
As of this morning, the siding is power-washed, the hot-tub has had its turnover, the flower beds are nearly cleaned up. Today, I checked the two week forecast, and with no frost predicted in the next two weeks, I uncovered the roses.
Don't get me wrong. I'm kind of ambivalent about the whole global warming thing (living in Wisconsin, I say "Bring it on!"). But this ain't normal. Not only is it not normal, its using up all my excuses to work in the yard to pass the time before we return home to SweptAway in May.
The one thing that's missing from this glorious weather is... our Beach!
So... anyone else having the same thing happening? Or is it just us?Chris
