Oh, the weather outside is...

Beautiful one day, frightful the next!

Yesterday it was 60 degrees here in Huntley. Not exactly sunny, but nice and warm.
When we moved to the area, we were told by several people that Spring comes early, and it stays. People told us that once it starts to get warm here, it doesn't go back. I'm here to tell you that's a big fat lie! Also, nobody told us that the weather is bizarre and unpredictable.
Here's an example. 60 degrees yesterday during the day. Last night, falling temperatures and 50 mph. winds. Today, wind chills in the single digits!

Yup, Spring came early here in the mid west. It also left pretty darn fast. I guess I can't complain, the snow was pretty minimal this year compared to NY. Oh, I shouldn't say that! It's probably going to snow now!

These pictures of the kids were taken a couple of days ago when it was in the 40's.

I'll just sit here and hold out hope, knowing that tomorrow will at the very least be totally different from today!

Well Ronda, if you were from India, you sure would appreciate the different changing seasons here - spring, summer, fall and winter. In India it's summer, summer, summer and summer...how boring, you have no idea!
