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!
DOES ANYBODY REALLY KNOW
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!
