Weather Wonder

Ah, spring is here. Sunshine, blue skies and the scent of flowers fill the air, but the possibility of frost, temperatures in the 30s, rain and gusting winds can happen in the blink of an eye. Welcome to Bay Village in the spring. The morning can be balmy and beautiful and by 5 p.m. it can be cold and raining.

Citizens of the North Shore have to be tough. Our weather isn't for sissies. Children can be dodging raindrops and puddles on their way to school and find themselves sitting in a hot, stuffy classroom that afternoon. What you wear when you're leaving the house in the morning probably won't be appropriate when you're on your way home in the evening.

Don't despair. Summer is on the way. Try visualizing long, hazy days at the beach or ice cream dripping down your chin and on to your shirt. The aroma of an outdoor barbeque gets mouths watering. So much to look forward to. Now, when the weather plays its spring tricks on us, just sit back and think about all the fun summer activities on your calendar this July and August. Let's hope we have a summer of perfect weather.
