Hey y’all — I’m sorry I haven’t put up a real post since St. Patrick’s Day. A major client has gone under, and I’ve been scrambling to shore up my future revenue with some interesting new streams. Plus I have two papers due tomorrow. I am well, but busy.
So I’d like to start this blog’s very first open thread, on your local weather. I’m curious as to who else is experiencing strange weather like we’re having here in WNC, where spring arrived a month early and summer got here last weekend, on March 25. This Sunday, the day of my choral concert (when I had to wear pantyhose and heavy black clothes, thank you very much), WNC broke its all-time high from 1982 with an 81-degree day — during the first week of spring!
To put things in perspective, we’ve had a week of temps that are a good 20 degrees above the seasonal average. It should still almost be sweater weather, and we’re all wearing flip-flops and t-shirts.
I keep flashing that it’s summer. I’ve already had to use the AC in the car. People are mowing their yards and grilling out, and winter just ended a week ago.
What’s it like where you are?
