Six Word Saturday - 17 March 2012

Welcome to Six Word Saturday where Cate, from "Show My Face" blog asks us to share what's new in just six words.

I bet you thought I'd DESCRIBE what today is?

Or, that I'd BRING OUT the color GREEN?

But I'm not!


Hint, it's mid March 2012, with temperatures in the 70's expected to reach the 80's.  Although, things aren't always as they seem. 

As seventeen year Abby (out for a swim) discovered in her bathing suit at a local lake coming back to shore with ice in her hand.  Her story featured on Thursday's front page in the StarTribune.  Complete with a smile, and I imagine goosebumps too.

               DNR state climatologist Pete Boulay said, "Unprecedented for March" the ice has vanished from three southern Minnesota Lakes this week.

PLEASE, don't let your common sense slip away too.  The lakes are extremely cold.  Just ask Abby who took her dip on Wednesday in Lake Nokomis.  Well gosh the group was hanging out at the beach as if they were on some exotic beach vacation!  Of course somebody had to go in!

Remember to bring all your boating gear if you go boating!

Brenda, you are so right, right?! ha ha...I'm just hoping we have a beautiful spring and that old man winter and mother nature aren't brewing up something horrible after an easy winter!

well it's snowing here- and that's what it is supposed to do! BUT yesterday was warm and sunny-go figure!

It has been unseasonably warm here (Illinois) as well. I'm working to refrain from getting overly excited as well as screaming that it (it being wintry mixes) ain't over yet.

Hoping, however, that it is.

Minders to enjoy each day for the joy (and warmth) that it brings.

Lol! Ya I think the temperature is very high for this time of the year. I was looking at the temperature in D.C. and I was like, what!!! I didn't think the temperature could get that high over there during March. Lol! It's above average over here too but, it's still too cold for a swim, we need warmer temperatures, 80 degrees is too cold! : )

I went swimming in the ocean over a week ago. It was freezing, but fun!
