Oh Mother Nature, You’re SUCH a Tease

Guess where I’ve been this afternoon?  Wait for it . . .

The park.

I’m sure you’re thinking, And?  So what?

Well, it’s January in Philadelphia.  And I don’t do the park when it’s cold outside.  In fact, the conditions have to be pretty much ideal for me to endure a trip to the park.

But today the high temperature in our area is 69 degrees.  That ties the highest temp on record.  And it’s sunny to boot.  It’s been like this for two days, and it’s absolutely GLORIOUS!

Naturally it’s a short-lived reprieve, and I’m sure I’ll be back to complaining of the cold shortly.  But for now, I’m off to enjoy what’s left of the afternoon sunshine on my front porch!
