After two days of high winds, rain and cold temps the creeks are flowing high. I skipped a ride on a bike today for a 4 mile walk up the hill and along the roaring creek. Even though the sun came back out today, the winds remained high. Quite a chill in the air. I decided the walk would be more comfortable and enjoyable. Winds continue the next few days. Staying above 20 mph and as high as 35 mph. Temperatures looking like they won’t get much higher than the mid-40’s. That’s April in Northeastern Minnesota.
Another night and morning with light snow. It added up to another couple of inches. It was warm enough it was partially melting as it was piling up. I decided to spend the day being productive. I worked on our household budget and started our taxes. I had planned to get out for a ride as well. Then the day got away from me. As it was getting late in the day I decided not to take the time to get dressed up for a short ride and just get out for a quick walk around the neighborhood.
One mile uphill, a loop through the woods, and back down the hill. It had been cloudy and snowing for a day and a half. Part way through the walk the sun started to peek out of the clouds. What a wonderful feeling with the cool air, fresh snow, and the warm March sun.
The short walk really help clear my head and lift my spirits.
I’m glad I made the effort to get outside.
I hope you got out this weekend and had a Happy Easter.
