Update: Summer Before Spring.

Here in Western Michigan summer seemed to come long before spring had ever sprung! It's now the first week in April, and two weeks ago (in the middle of March) we were in the midst of a stretch of over two weeks with temperatures reaching into the 70's and for a lot of that event well into the 80's! It was unprecented, it was un-real and surreal all at the same time. The grass grew green like May, the trees flowered and started to sprout, and the tulips in Holland sprouted two months early!! heck, the girlfriend and I even dipped our toes into a still icy Lake Michigan.

It turned out to be the warmest March EVER on recorded history in Michigan. EVER. Sink in yet?? Good, because today is Wednesday, April 4th, 2012. The weather is still ahead of the curve. For a while afterward it got rainy and dropped into the deep 40's. Usual late March weather. It is however back up into the 50's and 60's and will be virtually completely sunny for this entire coming week. Yup, that's what the actual forecast is. It's what's for dinner.

Yesterday I not only lifted weights in the morning, but then got a burst of energy several hours later and decided I wanted to go walk around Reeds Lake. That walk turned into a 5K run within 50 meters of my start. The GF and I have been walking the 4+ miles around Reeds Lake a lot lately, and I have taken to jogging around it. It's a marvelous diversion from my normal boring jogging routes. Props to us!

All-in-all things are well. Big changes brewing soon. Love to all!!!
