The Tease (Written by: Joel Heitkamp)

by Amy Iler

We have all been there the before… whether it was an older sibling or even an older teammate, we have all been teased. The weather is doing it right now. 

I just stepped outside and it was 33 degrees. Not only does it feel like spring, but it is starting to look like it! The sun is staying out longer, critters are popping their heads out to see what the weather is doing and while ice fishing, I've run into some strange tracks in the snow.

We've all been waiting for weather like this week’s, the much needed break from a long cold snap. Heck, I’m 52 years old and I don't remember a stretch of cold weather this bad. You can see it in how people interact, your daily routines and even in the monthly bills.

As much as we deserve it and as much as we want it… don't fall for it.

We still have plenty of winter to grumble about. In fact, later this week, it appears the temperatures will dip down to “bone-chilling” again.  

But, don’t let me wreck it for you right now… it is gorgeous outside and I intend on scrapping the driveway and cleaning up some dog poop! Glamorous jobs only provided by weather like this.

I guess, sometimes, it nice to be teased.
