Is it Spring Yet?

It’s been overcast and windy here all darn day.  And by windy, I mean North Dakota wind.  Constant 10-15 winds with huge gusts.  Hasn’t done much in the way of rain or snow, but it certainly has looked like it all day.

I really, really want spring to show up.  It’s been a long winter, or at least it seems that way when it’s on its way out.  Already, some of the bulbs are pushing their little leaves up out of the ground. They got snowed on last week.  That’s what you get for being ahead of the game I guess.

Whining aside, we have had a few days of spring that were quite enjoyable.  Connor loves to color so we bought him some sidewalk chalk and he has spent several hours outside making the sidewalk a mish-mash of colors.  Then it rains and washes it all away and gets it ready for another coat!

I really want to barbecue too.  We have once or twice this year, but each time it was more of a cook it outside and only go outside to check it when you have to.  I want to be able to sit outside while the food is cooking and even eat it out there if I want.  Without a coat.

Even as I say all of this, I know there are those in the southern hemisphere that are preparing for winter.  Sorry guys and gals.  I still want my spring though.

  1. I know the feeling 🙂 Last week it was trying to snow, yesterday it was gloomy all day and rained. But today, start of british summer time (clocks go forward) and it’s been glorious. We did have a few spots of rain (whilst the sun was still out!) and a mini hail storm (for about 2 minutes) but otherwise it’s been great. Not quite warm enough for BBQ and eat outside weather, but we’re getting there.

    Guess I should get the BBQ cleaned up ready!

  2. I had a urge to grill on Sat too… perhaps if the weather cooperates this weekend.
