Is Ohioans even right? I don't know. Anyways, so today was actually a warm day. Like, literally warm, not just warm in the sense of it's-not-below-freezing kind of warm. I think the high was around 62 or so. The morning wasn't that warm, but definitely not coat weather. So, Grant pulled out a short-sleeved shirt, and I wore a semi-short-sleeved shirt to church. I was thinking that, surely, other people at church would be dressed similarly. I mean, it's been a long, cold winter. Anything above 50 should be short-sleeve weather, right?
We pull up at church, and I see people wearing their winter coats! Winter coats! One of our friends said Grant was being "ambitious" for wearing short sleeves, and that he wore his coat, scarf, and gloves on his way to church today.
While we were driving, I saw this lady in traffic next to us with a very heavy coat on and thick gloves. We almost had our AC on.
I don't get it. And this wasn't the first time this has happened. We've noticed it before when we've had random warm days during the winter.
I remember at college back in Florida, whenever it would get "cold" for us (around the 50s or so), everyone from the South would be all bundled up, and the Michiganders and Ohioans would be walking around in summer clothes saying how warm it was. The complete opposite of what I've witnessed actually living in Ohio.
Grant has a theory...People up here just get it in their heads that it's not warm until April or May, so they have to stay bundled up until then, despite the temperatures.
Not us. We will take advantage of these few and far between warm days that we get and wear our short sleeves proudly.
Which reminds me, just about a month until we won't have to worry about freezing temps for a long, long time! We're just a little excited. California here we come!!
**Watch out, Albuquerque...we'll be stopping there for a few days on our way to Cali.
