Springtime In November

weathercockYes, Spring has arrived and no, I do not live in Australia.

The last 5 days have been warm. Ridiculously warm. 20 degrees (70 if you’re American), sun, gloveless, bootless, snowless and leafless. Yes, leafless, since it’s NOVEMBER. And even though I’ve already bitched about the coming of fall, I must complain about the weather again.

So what is it? Global Warming, or El Nino? The answer is: It doesn’t matter. Because when Global Warming feels this good, not too many people are going to complain about it, myself included. Still, I’m a little disturbed by three things:

1 – I saw Canadian Geese migrating…North!
2 – I saw a spider building a web outside. Talk about optimistic. In November there are no bugs to catch, you know?
3 – I saw tulip bulbs starting to sprout. I’d laugh at the fools who planted them, except I’m one of them.

So yeah, the whole Global Warming/El Nino Combo Special feels kind of cozy and nice even if it means we’re all doomed.


P.S.  Did you know that Weathervanes are also referred to as Weathercocks? Neither did I.  I guess it makes sense, being roosters and all.
