Ready for summer…

I’m just waiting on the damn weather to get the hint.

It’s 5 degrees and raining today.

I’m not a fan.

A photo of a patio, a chair, and two tables on a rainy day

The grass in the background is bright green, but the tree directly behind the chair has only very small leaves on it yet. It is a rainy day.

Ugh, the weather

It’s downright disheartening to see everyone’s sunny Spring photos on Facebook and Instagram when our forecast looks like this:

A screencap of cloudy, chilly, rainy weather for the next 10 days.

I could handle the lack of sun if the temperatures were warmer. I could handle the chilliness if the sun would come out.

This though? This is no fun.

I’m just trying to focus on the fact that the temperatures are trending upward.

For four days next week, the temperature won’t drop below zero.

Let’s see that as a reason for hope, hey?
