February in April

We’re in the Hamptons today.  It’s April 16th.  It’s April 16th, but it feels and looks like February 16th.  I know you’re tired of hearing me talk about how bad our weather is, but it stinks!

Normally on April 16th I’d be running outdoors early in the morning.  Not today.  Today we went to the gym because it was in the 30’s this morning.

Normally on April 16th the trees and flowers are in bloom and Spring is underway.  Not today.  Today the trees are bare and there is barely a bud in sight.  The sky is grey, the grass the brownish, the hedges are leafless.  It feels like February.  Truly.

It’s not good.  Not good at all.

In Sag Harbor the ice cream stores are closed.  People are walking through town wearing down jackets, hats, scarves and gloves.  The wind is blowing into their faces.  Nobody is strolling.

Who do we blame for this?

Al Gore?

Obama?

Nuclear physicists?

Oil magnates?

Arab countries?

Or ourselves?
