This weekend the weather in Minnesota made me wonder if I had been transported to a brown lake-filled Florida. It will not surprise you to know, faithful reader, that my weather home page has the current temperature for Central Minnesota and the current temperature of a certain resort in Central Florida. On Saturday morning the temperatures were the same. Crazy. Normally we’d be on sandbox watch about now.
Here it is:
I did not realize the sandbox was so blind until I went to take this picture.
I appreciate that we need to be aware and proactive about global warming and climate change, but I have to say that — and I think I speak for many of us — for most Minnesotans, it’s going to take us a while to really get on fire about this subject. A mild winter and freakishly early spring is . . . well . . . nice in a climate where winter takes up most of the year. We could have been buried by a snowstorm on this date in mid-March and instead we were grilling.
In our shorts.
We are living in our own spring break. How great and economical is that?
TGRJ: 1.25 miles. I really wanted to stop and walk the last two blocks, but I realized that I would be walking the extra mileage I was trying to add on today. I made it. I am almost up to the halfway point. Caught a glimpse of a huffing and puffing little middle aged mommy in a business window. Wait, that was me. I’ve got to work on looking cooler. Literally.
