I'll Take It!!!

The temperature here today is 64 degrees. SIXTY FOUR DEGREES. In February. In Colorado.

Just last week I had snow in my backyard, and the weatherman was reminding us that March and April are our snowiest months.

Not today though.

When I was picking kids up from school this afternoon I passed walkers and runners everywhere wearing tank tops and shorts! So many people (and pets) were out enjoying the Colorado sunshine!!!

I don't know how long these temps will last, but I'm not complaining.

It feels like spring and I LOVE it!

Maybe that groundhog/shadow thing really is a hoax. I would NOT be disappointed one bit.

I heard on the news that Puxatawnie Phil (or however you spell it) is only right 40% of the time!

Ah, spring in CO...There's nothing like it. March and April may be snowy, but that sloppy, wet snow is so quickly gone. The only bummer it brings is crushed tulips and daffodils.

It really was beautiful, wasn't it?

Tell Allison we made a good call last night--Kylie has the croup. The doctor said it is a virus. I didn't know that, did you? I am so glad that she didn't share it with your friends!

Have a wonderful tomorrow!

Argh...we MAY have made it to 45 today. I have on two layers.

Enjoy.

That was me being slightly jealous and yet thinking I should probably be happy for you:0

I think some of that weather is supposed to be here tomorrow. Yipee!

Jennifer said...

I am so ready for spring!

I had to laugh at the groundhog thing....my daughter (5) asked today if the groundhog saw her shadow and if that means it will stay dark for months. ROFL I was in stiches!

We had around 66 here today--give or take a degree and the kiddos had a GREAT time outside!

I am SOOO ready for warm temps to come and STAY..my bones are calling out for it!

Glad you had a warm sunny day! it's almost intoxicating, isn't it?!

It was cold at the first baseball game tonight, but the days are getting warmer and that makes me happy!!

Have a great week.

You are not helping my Colorado lust.

It was 40 here today, which was an improvement over our 21-degree high yesterday.

But Thursday, we're under a Winter Storm Watch. We could get six inches.

Such is spring in the Upper Midwest.

No fair! 39 and cloudy today. I actually am ready for spring weather, except I have to wear shorts again. Yikes! Hope you enjoyed your sunny day! Won't last long, huh?

Michele said...

I am so jealous!!! It is cold here in the South. What's up with that? Glad you're enjoying the spring-like weather.

Lauren Kelly said...

That's unpredictable weather for you. We get it all the time here in Florida, haha!!! :o)

Melissa @ Breath of Life said...

And I want snow :-0 We haven't had more than an inch here in a couple of years, and I'd love to see some!

Deidre said...

Oh how I NEED a day that's 64 degrees. Right now, it's 32 and not looking good for the afternoon. I don't think I have looked forward to Spring more in my life.

Have a great day OUTSIDE, Meredith.

Same here, we're taking the day off from schoolwork and heading to the park in a little bit.
Yay!
