Since the climate changed even enough for most political morons to notice, a regional myth has become Common Wisdom: “We don’t get a Spring anymore.” I call bullshit.

It will be in the ’50’s this weekend, allegedly, in mid-May not exactly springy but what people are talking about is like three random hot days in the midst of a lot of wet cold and wind. And but it’s beautiful outside, lush, flowers and trees blooming like nobody’s business, and the typically violent MW thunderstorm tonight came at the perfect time at my house under the perfect cloud conditions and sun arc-wise, and it was very, very dark outside at 5PM but the sun was still bright and in retrospect at the right angle for general reflection and then the blooming white dogwoods kind of lit up, glowed, came alive as if electrified for a few minutes and it was lovely.
