I'm taking bets on when it's going to be Spring.

I am sitting here with fresh air drifting into my house via open windows, and enjoying the short lived relative quiet that only exists in the absence of my son. It's February, and I'm enjoying this beautiful weather that so many yankees call Summer temperatures. It's only nice because hell hasn't awakened and come to the Earth's surface for a visit yet. Even that has a hibernation sesason. I began thinking about what kind of weather to expect next month too. For those of you unfamiliar with North Florida weather patterns, March has one of two. We'll have freezing cold early and absolutely GORGEOUS weather at the end of March. .....OR.... We'll have gorgeous weather like we're having today early in the month and then the end of the month gets that bitter cold. I say bitter because when you've been out doing yardwork that comes with plant growth after 80* days, followed by 25* temps...it IS bitterly cold to us. For Florida, 20's and 30's IS COLD thank you. Yes, we even get temperatures below 20* on occasion. The TPC moved the tournament here at Sawgrass to May because March is so unpredictable. I don't know why the wussies did that, golf is supposed to be a little unpredictable. I mean where else can you run the chance of mimicking some of St. Andrews' breezes without leaving North America? Being a flat state though, you'll have to go elsewhere for the cliffs. I have my suspicions about the weather this March. What are yours?

Ah..alas, while today is a cheery, (although partly cloudy with a few showers) kind of day, tomorrow is supposed to be *&%$#@* cold. Low of 28! But fear not! It will be back to sunny and mid 70's by the weekend! W00T! Neener-neener-boo-boo!! I think you should replace Tim Deegan...he skeeves me out.

OK, everyone think good karma & make it warm the whole month. Really the whole year would be great with me. I don't need no stinky snow.
