There is a time every year when I sense that the weather "clicks." The last day of freezing temperatures, the final frost, the last real opportunity for snow. My feeling is, that day was Tuesday, here.
It frosted Tuesday morning, and the temperature was about 30. It had been around that temperature for several days prior, and I think that will be the last extended period of cold weather we will have. Call it my meteorological mastery, call it my vast knowledge of, and connection with, nature. Shit, call it a guess... which it is.
But I'm telling you, spring and summer are here to stay. The yard will soon green up, and not just in the areas where Regis pees. The trees will bud, flowers will awaken, and minds will again move toward those sweet summer thoughts... like cleaning the gutter, mowing the goddamn grass and washing the dirty-ass car.
Oh, and steak on the grill.
Damn I love summer.
