What with this mild winter we've had so far it's been a strange year. Usually we have to spend at least a couple of weeks bundled up in multiple layers and adjusting our duty belts to accommodate the insulated coveralls.
I think I brought my coveralls once this winter but never put them on.
Today was supposed to be somewhere in the low 60's so this afternoon I transferred all of my junk to a short sleeve shirt and decided to forgo the long johns.
I felt nekkid.
In a way having on long sleeves and a hoodie under my coat and the layer of long johns on made me feel like I was wearing body armor.
As if I was insulated from more than just the weather. If you get my drift.
Today I felt kind of exposed and a tad vulnerable.
I was comfortable..... But it felt strange not to be all bundled up.
I know in a couple of months I'll be complaining about how freaking hot it is, especially inside some of those houses. Very few places have any sort of air conditioning that works. Mostly we have to rely on fans.
The three bears would never make it here in Raccoon City. It's always either too hard or too soft. There's just no room for "just right."
Sunday is going to be Johnny Appleseed Day and Worship of Tools Day as well as National Oatmeal-Nut Waffles Day.
This weekend I think I'll be out worshiping some of my favorite tools.
And don't forget to set your clocks! Spring forward!
