A Tale of Two Temperatures

Hubby Tony and spent last weekend visiting with Son Tony, who lives in the Phoenix area.  When we left St. Louis Thursday night there was a hint of early spring in the air, and I wore appropriate clothes--jeans, a long sleeved cotton shirt, and a jacket. After we arrived in Phoenix I ditched the heavy clothes and spent three wonderful days wearing shorts and tees. We spent a good portion of each day outside, taking advantage of the warm, sunny weather.

Yesterday morning it was a drag to put the jeans back on for the trip home.  To add insult to injury,  the St. Louis forecast called for snow flurries.  Sure enough, when we pulled into the driveway late last night there was a dusting of white stuff on the grass and plants. 

For the next few weeks our temperatures will go up and down like a roller coaster, but I know it will be a while until I need summer clothes again. This afternoon I did the laundry and put them back in the off-season area until it's time...

Five years ago today: Drying Out


  1. My sister lives in Olivette .... she is so tired of wintry weather!

    1. One of the local weather guys predicted the NEXT FEW winters will be equally extreme. That would be a shame, but since the forecasts are wrong so much I'm not going to worry too much about it :-)
