It looks like Global Warming has come back from its brief vacation. The temperature here has been in the upper 30's to upper 40's for the last week. All the snow is gone and we are having a thunderstorm right now. They are predicting 49 for the high today.

This weather frustrates a person like me, too warm to showshoe or cross-country ski, too cold to bicycle—besides getting dark too early; ever since I got bronchitis real bad about 10 years ago I can't bike in weather below 50 degrees without getting bronchitis again. Definitely not worth it.

There is a bright side to it, though. My son and friends left last night/early this AM for Kansas City, MO and they didn't have to worry about snow or ice on the roads.

Ryan (our son) was loading the car late last night when our neighbor, the policeman drove by on duty. He thought it was I outside so he flashed the spotlight on him. Imagine a 21 year old caught in a cop's spotlight at about 1:00 AM. To make matters worse, Terry (the cop) turned into our driveway and flashed the lights. Ryan about died, he had never been to our new place and didn't remember our neighbor was a cop. Terry thought it was hilarious, as did Debbie and I. Ah, the little memories that he will take with him :)
