Enjoying a Warm Spring Day
Finally we enjoyed some sunshine and warm weather in Western New York yesterday. When I was on the air I had to take a double take when I saw 80 degrees and sure enough that’s what the thermometer read. It was nice to get outside and take a walk last night after I got home from work. It seemed like everyone in my neighborhood had the same idea too. I saw so many people walking their dogs, jogging and playing softball in the park. It was an awesome site. I walked several blocks around the neighborhood enjoying the dry evening.
As I passed by many homes I noticed the standing water in some of the yards around my neighborhood. A lot of us are in the same boat having saturated yards. Mine is so soggy it would be tough to mow it anytime soon so hope we get a few more dry days. I tried picking up a few sticks and branches that had fallen in the yard after the heavy winds a few days ago and boy did I get muddy doing so. Unfortunately the yard is looking a bit overgrown but there is nothing I can do until it’s dry. I’m going to do my best not to think about it, I tend to be a bit obsessive when the yard starts looking the way it does now. Can’t wait to start planting flowers and setting out my patio furniture. I’m so ready for summer.
