Time is moving on from late winter to early spring. In February – quite a tough one, all things considered – today’s low of 40 degrees would have felt fairly warm. And have been a temperature for which we would be grateful as a high.
Now, leaving the office after being inside for hours – 60 degrees, overcast skies, a damp breeze – felt downright cold.
I felt chilly enough this morning that I pulled a corduroy skirt and jacket out of the closet to wear – and then realized that no matter how cold it was, it would be quite odd and feel very bulky to wear corduroy in late April.
We had one perfect day last week. Bright sunshine, very light breeze, real warmth in the air. Everyone in town blossomed, smiles all over the place, lots of physical comfort and ease as folk were walking around.
Now we’re back to the chill and the damp. Not as many smiles around. Let’s just hang on. It will all be better soon. And then, soon enough – too hot!
