Spring?? This is Spring!!!??

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

This weather is enough to put a Therapist into a depression. Would a weather forecast like this for Spring make you want to hurt someone? We have been in Spring for a month now and for March we hit record rain-fall. When I do see the Sun, rarely, I feel like dropping to my knees in thanks.

I am an "outside" person. My sport is riding motorcycles. Getting ready to ride in this weather becomes a chore with all the multiple layers of clothes to keep warm. My safety factor goes down by 50%. I like to take long walks, jog...etc. emoticon
I NEED SUNSHINE AND LOTS OF IT!!! My Daylight "Happy-Lamp" just is not doing it for me.

    LMBO Chuck! I sometimes wonder why I live in Portland and if that short wonderful summer/fall is really worth it. Maybe we should move to San Diego. I'm not even getting my winter sun cruise this year.

    The midwest has some crazy weather, so some of those days don't look so bad to me lol. Early March it was still snowing and hovering around 10 degrees, then it warmed up to the 80s and now it's back into the mid-50's. Just when I thought I could put my coat away and break out the sandals. The sun will be here soon enough, though.

    Ihave been back in Oregon for 19 years and still can't get used to this weather. I guess I stayed in Calif for to many years...25 of them.

    What country/Island do you live on? Where I live, in the Midwest of U.S. spring just began two weeks ago.. summer is not until the third week of June. Usually we have snow until April or May, so we are enjoying this weather that is above 0 degreesF. If you do not shovel snow more than six months a year, you are very lucky to have only wet weather.
    I hate cold, ice, snow or cold.. but dream of retiring to some warm spot where the weather is at least as warm as yours. Maybe you can invite yourself to soembody's warm retirement spot ??
    Maybe you can change careers and become a Harley parts dealer, southern district???LOL..
