Spring in Utah can ben a very bizzare time of year. Some people will tell you that most of the time we kinda go right from winter to summer, but there really is a spring in there somewhere. I maintain that Utah is one of the few places in the world where you could hold the summer and the winter Olympics at the same time. There are certainly people who go golfing all year round (though I don’t understand the appeal).
So in the last couple weeks the weather was generally pretty good. The trees are starting to bloom and the flowers are coming up. Of course that means that the pollen is flying and the allergies go crazy. Time to break out the Claritin and Zyrtec (or the generic brands which are way cheaper). It is actually really pretty outside, I have even done some headshots outside which came out great.
At the same time though, there is still snow in the mountains and at least one ski area is still open. Then we got to the past two days and bam! I woke up the other day and it was snowing down here in the valley! There were a whole bunch of tweets from Snowbird talking about how they were having a powder day in late April. I considered pulling my skis back out of the shed, but I really had everything packed up. I suppose there may be some novelty to going next weekend, just to say that I went skiing in May, I am pretty sure that the mountain will still be open.
Spring is certainly a great time of year. I often will say that I love the winter, but spring and autumn are right up there. In all reality, I probably really like all the season equally. The really cool thing about spring is that when you wake up in the morning the sun is shining. I feel like I have more energy and life is good. It is amazing what a little extra daylight will do for you. I can’t say that the fresh air is good as it is full of allergens, but it is so nice to be able to spend time outside on green grass.
Of course every day also brings me closer to the end of the season at the theatre. That means that it is almost time to head out to the desert for the photo workshop. Then off to the east coast for my sister’s graduation and camp. So, summer will be fun too.
Well, when I thought about putting this thought together I think it was better in my head, but hey, it happens.
