Friday, March 9, 2012 was the best kickoff to Spring Break I’ve experience in a while. To start with, because I’d had three tests during that week, I didn’t have class for those three classes on Friday. That left me with two classes to attend. I thought about going to campus long and hard for about a second and then decided Friday would be a class-less experience. The sun was shining when I woke up and the temperature was in the low 50’s. Alissa and I decided that breakfast at Nova was in order. Praise be to the forces of the breakfast world, there was no wait! (You should plan your classes to start late-morning at least one day of the week so you always have the option to hit up Nova for breakfast.) After our leisurely morning meal and chat, we stroll out of Nova just shy of three hours later into a balmy bliss. Bozeman you really outdid yourself.
High noon brought dazzling bright sunshine and 69 degrees. Consider this a major weather mood swing. The Tuesday prior had brought 20 degree weather and a snow storm. We were literally giddy with excitement. Alissa spend some quality time with the dogs while I speed-packed for break. Then we threw on shorts and sandals and hit the streets for some Frisbee action. (I am embarrassed to say that the next day my shoulder was sore.)
That Friday felt like the Friday at the end of finals week and not the end of midterms. It was sunny, and I was packing up my suitcase. It really could have been May. I know that ski enthusiasts have been unhappy with the mild winter and thus the lack of snow. I say, change gears friends! Instead of mourning winter, eagerly anticipate the coming of spring and summer! Gosh it feels great to have the sun on your toes.
You better believe I just spent an entire blog talking about the weather. It was glorious.
