Mother Natures Indecision

One of the biggest things that is affecting me right now is the weather.

The last Friday of classes was the first time warmth was able to shatter the cold. It was a blue clear sky, sunshiny bright day, at least at Seton Hill. I went home, which is only forty five minutes away, to find we had mounds of snow still, it was warm, but there was no promising green tips of grass blades poking up and adding color to the rather dull white of the snow. Then, I wake up the next morning to find out it had snowed, yet again. Everything was now blanketed in fresh fluffy whitness, including the roads. It then got bitterly cold again, and in the early week snowed so much my mother was wondering if my little brother had a school delay. A day or two after it snowed the second time, I woke up to the sun shining and the brown squishyness of my yard. The snow had melted, the sun was shining, and the ground was squishy. After that, mother nature kept throwing warm days at me, one after the other. I exited my house without a coat, not even hesitating about not grabbing one. Friday and Saturday both I layed on my bed reading, sun streaming through my window, sending a particular promising warmth through my body. Yesterday and today, i stepped out of the dorm, coatless, breathing in the fresh, cool morning air, and staring at the perfect blue, white puffed sky. Sunday evening i was walking outside in my socks, and not wearing a coat. Early this afternoon, Amanda, Stephanie Christian and I walked out of the Lowe door, giddily talking about the weather, on the count of three, we all breathed in deeply, amazed at the fact our nostrils were no longer freezing. I love this weather, i want to go swing, and play like a little kid. It makes me want to be small again, with no fears and no worries, it makes me want to bring out my summer clothes, slap my feet into some flip flops, but most of all, it makes me smile, and it makes me giddy. It makes me feel as though things are getting good, and new things are going to happen. Then, just when i start to really enjoy myself, mother nature shatters the illusion, dropping the temperature to half of what it was, and sending a different form of precipitation streaming from the clouds. Ah mother nature, when will your indecisiveness end?
