No Spring again?

After gray, cold, wet days with temperatures in the 40's and 30's at night, today was in the 60's and tomorrow Connecticut might reach 80.

So, no Spring again. Straight from late winter to summer. Bummer.

I've probably told you this before, but Anawalt, West Virginia, where I grew up, had the perfect weather. Anawalt is farther south than Richmond, Virginia, but at an altitude just under 2000 feet above sea level, we had two months of winter, two months of summer, four months of spring and four months of autumn.

Lots of snow in January and February--much of which melted in a day or two before the next fall. Temperatures in the high 80's (seldom 90+) in July and August and March-June a long, mountain spring--cool at night and warm in the day--and an Autumn that started in September and went until Christmas or so.

Not a bad climate to live in, believe me.

Spring often skips Connecticut. I've lived here since 1980 and we generally go from snow on Palm Sunday to 80 degrees on Easter. And winter is a bear in New England.

I miss a 4 month spring more every year.
