“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?" . . .
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine . . ."

WEEK 17 - WEATHER
This has been a crazy year for weather. The winter stayed fairly warm, & then spring seemed to come out of nowhere - probably due to our lack of a significant cold season. And now the temperature drops so low that we end up with hail storms one day & then 80^ weather the next! The original theme for this week was supposed to be 'rain,' but since that has been too unpredictable, it was changed to 'weather.'
Last week, we were trapped inside the house for a couple days while it poured outside! Yes, this would have been a great time for pictures, but there was no way I was going out in the storm. When the hail started coming down, Will was so blown away by it that he raced up to our bathroom, opened the shutters & yelled downstairs that the "snow" was breaking the house - & it was big snow. Did I mention there was no way I was going out in the storm? The hail bounced around everywhere while a mini river raged its way down the street.
A couple days later, we went down to visit my parents', & the weather changed so drastically from before that I hadn't prepared any sunshine/hot weather-appropriate clothes. So Will spent much of the week outside in his skivvies (what's new?!!) while digging in the dirt & running through the hose while Nana watered her garden. I much preferred this kind of rain!
