Spring is here, ah-su-puh-ring is here...

I love spring. Spring in the PNW basically means days like today (Thursday, as I write this). 70 degrees, perfect days, and yet still chilly at night, so you can still sleep under a pile of covers and you don’t need the AC. So good.

Today was also the first day I wore shorts. I took the Whitest Legs In Human History and put them in short pants after work. It was pretty great to feel like winter is officially past us, even though I know that there’s probably a bunch of rainy, cold days ahead of us before it gets so hot that we complain about the heat all the time.

What’s spring like where you live? Do you look forward to it, or do you dread it because of the unbearableness of summer where you are? Do you have any spring traditions that you bust out now that the weather’s getting better?

Let’s talk about spring. Or anything, really - this is your open thread, so we can talk about whatever you want. Weekend plans? Are you going to see Avengers: Endgame this weekend? If so, don’t spoil it when you do, I won’t be able to see it till Tuesday at the earliest.

What else is going on in your world this weekend?
