Last Monday night we were expecting six inches of snow in Iowa. Today the temperature reached the low 80’s. Where the fuck did spring go? It’s gone from winter to summer without even stopping to consider spring. That’s no fun. Where are the mild days and cold nights? Where are the tulips? And daffodils? Where are the spring rains. Nope, we’ve gotten none of that. Before you know it, I’ll have the air conditioning on because the temps are in the 100’s. Of course if I have to choose, I’ll take the 80 degree temps over the -20 temps we had back in January and February. So I guess as they say, beggars shouldn’t be choosy.
This is the bank that I passed on the way to school this afternoon.
These are the tulips that I pass on the way to school that have looked dead for the past several weeks. Today some of them, although damaged, looked like they might actually bloom.
