Two-day Spring Teaser

Yesterday and today we have had "warmer" weather in NYC.  I put warmer in quotations, because I think it is odd that I associate temperatures in the high 40's as being warm.  However, when it has been in the teens and twenties, 45 degrees feels like summer (maybe not quite).  Yesterday I walked two blocks from work to get lunch with NO COAT!  It was so nice to be walking around and not wanting to get back into a building.  Last night I went to the gym and then I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond to return something.  Usually, I would take the bus the 20 blocks to BBB, but last night it was so nice out that I decided to walk.  I was amazed at the number of people out and about.  Almost every restaurant I walked by was full of people and there were lots of people on the streets as well.  I did wear a coat last night, but no scarf or gloves.  This morning was just as nice, so after church I only took the subway to 53rd Street and was going to walk back to my apartment.  I walked about 10 blocks but it had started to get windy and cold so I decided to hop on the bus.
I am so looking forward to spring and summer in this city.  Everyone tells me don't expect consistently good weather until May, so I will have to wait until then.  Hopefully we will have these "warm" days every so often until then.

40 is nice in NYC but it would not be so nice in Arizona. Miss you but love the Skype.
