- Spring-ish

I'm sitting here staring out my window at work on an absolutely gorgeous Friday listening to my Ke$ha station on Pandora (have no fear, I love/hate her as much as I ever have) and it is blatantly apparent that Minneapolis is all Spring-ish. 

The temperature has been steadily rising for the past two weeks.  Our highs are like 60 degrees!  To be quite honest, I'm not even sure how to process that information.  True to my "expect the worst" motto I think I nearly convinced myself that it would always be winter; that I would never know a Minneapolis not covered in snow.  But ya'll it's been at least 2 weeks since it snowed last.  Maybe even 3.  I can't remember but most of what was on the ground has melted and the only thing left are the gigantic piles in parking lots that take a while to melt based on their size.   They're on their way though because temperatures are staying above freezing and my car is actually HOT when I get in it at the end of the work day.  Which means I get to drive with the windows down - one of my all time favorite activities. 

Which begs the question - when will it snow again?

Because I don't trust Minneapolis and it's only April.  I had counted on Spring to come in May.  So basically I just feel like it's too early to get all excited...It's hard not to get carried away though - this weather is kind of dazzling.  And it's way to premature to say something about a season that's still "budding" (WOAH, I should have warned you about the corniness of the approaching pun)...but Spring-ish, I think I love you.
