Is Spring Here to Stay?

I must have said something right in yesterday's post to activate the weather gods. Apparently they listened to my subliminal request for nice weather and obliged this morning. Gone was the funky fog that had been lingering over the city, rolling in just around the time I'm ready to go to the gym for a workout. Gone was the cold that we couldn't seem to kick. Gone was the constant threat of rain--at least for a few hours on the weather forecast.

It's about darn time. Finally, I could bring out the shorts. Finally, I could break a sweat on a bike commute. Finally, I could ride my bike to my destination instead of dragging out the car (and with gas prices the way they are, I really hated doing that). Finally, I could get some much-needed vitamin D. And sweat, too much even, in a yoga class when the heat and humidity stood at zero. And not have an excuse to skip a pool workout, which I had been doing because it was too cold outside to tolerate the cold water inside. I did all of these today, except the swim (once again) but that's because the gym closed on me. Felt. So. Good. Pretty good considering the world was supposed to end yesterday.

And I thought I was going to have to write another letter to Mother Nature asking for mercy. I really didn't want to have to wear a fleece to stay warm come June...again. But if I could make one request, I'd ask for the snow to stop in the Colorado mountains (saw a picture of a snow-covered subdivision near Keystone)--save it for November when we can enjoy it. Plus I want to be able to ride my bike in the vicinity next month and I'd prefer to look less like a pack mule when pedaling.

How did you spend your most recent sunny day?

  1. My most recent sunny day is actually today and is probably the sunniest day of 2011 over here where I live :)

    I just got back from work and I plan on going on an evening walk with my wife.

    Too bad it wasn't sunny yesturday (Sunday) cause we had a lot of free time on our hands and not much to do.

    Well, I can always hope for the weekends ahead :)

  2. Hi Tom,

    Nice to hear you're having nice weather today although I totally understand the frustration when it happens on a Monday and not a Sunday. We've had a few nice weekdays but then it's gone before you can enjoy it on the weekend. I'll send some nice weather vibes your way for upcoming weekends :) Have a great evening walk, sounds like a great way to enjoy the day!
