change is the only constant

i know lots of states adopt the adage "if you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes and it'll change".

but michigan? michigan is God's mad meteorological laboratory.

late friday and into saturday we had a snowstorm blow through.
saturday afternoon it was at least half melted away and i walked around with my jacket unzipped (yes, I, the ice queen).
monday started out warm and got progressively colder, even as the sun rose higher in the sky.
tuesday was not bad, but a freak blizzard showed up for about 5 minutes at noon.
wednesday was sunny and warm.

what is up with this???

i don't mind the cold, it's why i chose to live in the northern US. but the constant see-sawing of the temperature and the gusting wind is driving me bonkers!

poor pooka wants nothing more than to go out and play, but if the temperature is agreeable, the ground condition is not. who wants to get bundled up in snow pants when it's 45 degrees out?
