The Weather Dance
Spring and Summer have been waltzing around each other for a while now. Spring should have said it's goodbyes long ago and you'd think Summer would be nicely settled in by now, just beginning to think about packing it's bags. But tradition does not have it's way this year. Spring has delayed it's departure, pushing away our hot Summer sun, bringing warm rains, soft winds, and cloudy skies. Summer struggles against odds to bathe us in hot rays and coax the shy flower buds out of their shells. This weather dance has us in a suspended state of extremes. Should I bring an umbrella and shawl today or sport sandals and sunglasses? It's anyone's guess because this struggle for season supreme has left us guessing almost daily of what the weather will bring, or more accurately, which will be leading the dance today.
