A few comments on the weather

Good heavens!! The weather so far this year has been so strange. We seem to move from one extreme to the other, with almost no time in between.

We usually manage to make it until the first of May before we have to turn on the air conditioner, and it usually stays on until mid to late September. The heat goes on anywhere from mid-October to the first of November, and it stays on until mid to late March.

This year has been far from typical. So far, we've turned off the heat, had to turn it back on, turned it back off, turned on the a/c. Turned off the a/c again, then turned it back on. It's been on since. At one point in April it was 95 degrees. Thankfully, that heat wave only lasted for a few days. Overall though, I think that April has been far from typical, weather-wise.

Just Monday it was 85 degrees (warmer than normal, but still not horrid), where we spent a lovely (if crowded) day at the zoo. I just went out to feed the birds and it was CHILLY! Came in to check the temperature, and it's currently 56 degrees! Crazy weather. Crazy! Thankfully, we have an indoor activity planned for the afternoon!

April really is the cruellest month.
