Hoosier Weather

Let us permit nature to have her way. She understands her business better than we do. ~Michel de Montaigne

Yesterday and today we have spring teaser weather. In my previous post on January 28th we had 10" snow. The snow is gone and the temperature is 65 as I post this entry.

Typical of Indiana weather though, it will get cold again by the end of the week. This year winter has been colder and colder longer than in recent memory, with temps in the single digits. Where's global warming when you want it? haha

Here in Indiana after winter when temperatures raise into the 50's you will see people driving with their windows down, opening windows to the house or outside with a light jacket. Same is true in Indiana after summer when fall arrives and the temperatures dive into the 50's, Hoosiers will say it's cold and put on those jackets and roll up those windows. Funny how the same temperatures feel different depending upon what season it is.

The good thing about being a Hoosier is just when you have had enough of one season the next is around the corner.

When I talked to my friends in Iowa today they said it was 60F outside! I do however share your view - it will get colder again. It really seems to have been a very cold winter in many parts of the USA this season. I somethimes also wish global warming would become more evident - and not just the mean temperature!
