Dear Weather: Please Make Up Your Mind

I’ve touched on the whole weather subject before, but I’ve got a few more things to say.

First off, this weekend was beautiful, Sunday especially. It made me think about spring, that quick, lonely season that appears briefly in Texas before the soul-sucking heat of summer.

Always the dutiful amateur meteorologist, I headed to check out the weather for the rest of the week. Next Saturday: 49 and rainy.

So, weather, your move. I’m fine with winter, I love it, but not when you tease us with spring. Make up your mind.

    Bradford, this is NOT a good thing! Weird, I was just researching the very same thing, and you should be very afraid. Here’s some info :

    “La Niña, the weather phenomenon widely blamed for withering drought in the southwestern United States and South America, will last into the Northern Hemisphere spring of 2012, the U.S. Climate Prediction Center said on Thursday. The latest observations … suggest that La Niña will be of weak-to-moderate strength this winter, and will continue thereafter as a weak event until it likely dissipates sometime between March and May,” the CPC said in its monthly update.”

    Even if it does dissipate in May, will we have the same kind of hellacious temps we had last summer?

    I love the back and forth! After five long years of enduring winters in Ohio, when no leaves or blooms are seen for four long months, I think the days that hint of spring help me through the cold days. 14 days of winter would be fine with me. Preferably not all in a row.
