I mean, sure, it's Spring... but... no. It's not been.
Jason likes to say "we don't get shoulder seasons anymore" and I'm suddenly realizing I know what he means.
As in, we haven't had much Spring like weather so far this year. We've had a few nice, sunny days, but it's been a bit chilly. Not... cold, but not Spring-like either. And I just kept saying "well, it's still early Spring", right?
Kind of? But not.... really?
So then when we had a couple of nice days here this week, I was sort of suspicious. Because the sunny days we have had haven't been warm warm. They've been "I'll bring a hoodie, and probably not need it" followed by a "oh, I guess I need a jacket, damn" kind of days. So two days ago it was a sunny day, and apparently warm. Jason and I went and had some food and a drink on a patio, but in the shade.
We then spent an hour or so in his backyard, but I wore a hat, drank water, and stayed in the shade most of the time.
And I somehow got heat sick that night.
Like, actual sun stroke kind of sick... from it just being... warm? I have no idea. But then yesterday it was 24... more than double what it's been the last while. Out of nowhere.
I did better, dressed for it, etc etc but what on earth y'all?
I got heat sick I think, honestly, because my body was so shocked by the sudden change from cold-ish to kind of hot.
So yeah, I didn't get a sunburn, which I've done at this time of year before, but I still got unwell from the heat/sun. Le sigh.
And it's apparently going back to rain and "chilly" tomorrow... (today?) so who knows. It may be back to boots and blankets again. But for today at least, I got my sandals on and turned my heater off...
No idea how this Spring/Summer's going to go, that's for sure.
