When Nature throws you a curve in the Big Windy, one must just bend and catch it.

First you get unseaonably high temperatures (well for us, that means right around 50-degrees which those of you in warmer cllimes might grin at). We get Spring-Fever-for-a-Day and walk around as much as we can barefoot! Silly. I know.

Emboldened, you put your current crush up on the mannie and see how great it would look a s a short-sleeve model :)


Just a little ribbin’ around the bottom and it’s done? Just a couple of inches on the sleeves and it’s the cat walk?

(I need a Time-Out before I do something dramatic but this sure looks cute as a shortie!)

And it looks like Mother Nature is might help me out. Going from Springlike temps in the 50’s yesterday to what only happens Once Every 25 Years(!) is, well, here in the Midwest, Normal :)

Tom Skilling (my favorite Weather Guy) writes: “…none of this season’s cold spells has arrived more rapidly or on stronger winds than the arctic blast due to send temperatures into a preciptious dive beginning with a cold front’s passage between 3 and 5 p.m. Tuesday…mild upper 40-degree readings…dive…culminating in zero-degree readings by sunrise Wednesday…punishing 50mph winds are expected…

I’m thinking right around 7 p.m. I’m going to be reaching pathetically for whatever heavy long-sleeve sweater is in my range of sight and all that Spring-Talk is going to be gone with the wind…
