Mother Nature ... Are You Kidding Me?

The good news is, the robins are singing and the frogs are chirping ... the bad news is, the mosquitoes are already making life outside, beyond 6pm, unbearable (Hey folks, it's still March, this isn't supposed to be happening!)
So the rest of Canada is waiting for spring and we've skipped right into summer. Today, for the third day in a row, we have enjoyed temperatures above 20 C. I don't think I've ever been outside wearing a tank top on the 20th of March, not to mention (just for you Bob) bare feet ... Mother Nature has to be kidding?
Happy spring?
The real oxymoron: For the home commute I had to turn on the air in the SUV (for the second day) and it's still wearing snow tires!
I really can't help thinking Mother Nature is just teasing. Is she planning a nasty surprise - maybe next week - a sudden dump of snow?  If not, I'm gonna have to make a call and get that little VStar out of storage, I'm tired of listening to the bikes zoom by!

    I like your "free range toes" . feels good doesn't it now that summer has arrived. we are a bit envious, especially when it is Tank Top weather. I love tank tops

    I hope we get some warmth soon

  2. A heat wave in March? Who would of thunk? Hope it sticks around for you. Mosquitos in March can't be any fun though.

    Cute toes, by the way. Bob is going to be so impressed.

    1. I know ... it's making me wonder what's to come weather wise.
      (PS I usually don't apply the summer toes 'til May. Really my schedule is all messed up!)

  3. I'm enjoying this weather right along with you, but I too am a bit worried what mother nature has in store for us once this heat wave (never thought I'd use those two words in reference to March) ends. But lets hope for the best and get the bikes out ASAP.

  4. I think you've got it right, VStar, hedge your bets. The weather is pretty good here, too, but nothing like what you've got. Enjoy it, and load up on your deep woods bug spray, could be a long summer.

  5. Mosquitos in March! That's horrible. What you need now is a good freeze to do them all in then enjoy a mosquito free summer.
