I told myself I wasn’t going to whine about the weather . . .

. . . but COME ON — it’s May!

I went out for a run today and froze my butt off. There were snowflakes in the air. I got home at noon and looked at a weather website. WeatherUnderground confirmed my suspicions. It was 34.7 degrees at noon! On May 1st! With lots of wind! Even in Minnesota this is stupid.

This is what my yard looked like last year — A WEEK BEFORE THIS.

Lush . . . green . . . tulips blooming . . . actual spring.

This is what it looks like today.

Tough to find flowers today

Need more evidence?

The same shot today. I rest my case.

In case you’re planning on coming to Minneapolis this week for a vacation (just a joke) I suggest you wait a few weeks. Spring probably will eventually come and colorful things will grow.

I’m thinking maybe by Memorial Day.

Sorry about the whining. But I think it was minimal and evidence-based.

There were snowflakes in the air.

I’m done now.
