This month is shaping up to be every bit like April this year, with rainy days mixed with sunny ones, a hint of summer one day and every bit of fall the next. One needs to check the weather report every day to know how to dress. And April was totally like May usually is this year, with summer-like temperatures and bushes in full bloom.
I worry about our summer. I wonder if there will be too much rain, or too much sun, with humidity and heat in abundance. This has indeed been a bizarre weather year so anything's possible.
Whatever happens we'll survive. Those of us who have lived here forever have seen it all already and anything that happens will simply be another reference point, as in "This reminds me of the summer of '38" or "Remember when we had this kind of heat back in '75?"
The one thing we can never control is the weather. And a good thing too, since we'd no doubt mess it all up if we did.
