Dear Weather,


Dear Weather,
You can't trick me. I know that you are out there pretending to be all nice and sunny just to taunt me. I know you are giving me a slight breeze with little or no chance of rain just to mess with my little head. I know that you are sucking me into your lies. "Spring is approaching" you say, but I know from past experience that it is still far away.
I can't say that I don't want to believe that the time has come to start planting my garden, cleaning my house, and visiting the canyon. But I should wait. I've seen you do this to me before. Get me all excited, then when I least expect it I will be knee high in snow. All my hopes dashed.
So no, capricious weather, I will not succumb to your sunny rays and happy spring smells. I will wait until I know that no storm clouds will persist.
So, even though I bought some seeds, organized my closet, and stopped writing my thesis for a time...you haven't tricked me. Yet.
Sincerely,
Waiting for Spring

This is great! You are too fun! It reminds me of a story my mom sends me every spring about forsythia. I'll have to find it.

Mother Nature is totally hormonal! I've got a sure sign that snow is on the way...my tulips are 3 inches above the ground!...ready and waiting to get pounded by snow!

You crack me up, but I hope you're wrong. Apparently I've already been tricked... even though I know better!

Meg did you write that? I am guessing that you did. You are so dang amazing. I can see why professors lined up to read your next paper. I wish I had that talent. I think you should write a book.
