If there is one thing that living in DC for the past three years has taught me, it is not to take for granted abundant sunshine. Whereas in California I could count the number of rainy days in a year on one hand, there can be that many cloudy days here in DC in one week. It might not be the most exciting thing to read about, but I blog so much about the weather because this really is a new phenomenon to me.
So many people are finally excited to have real spring weather after what seemed like the most drawn out winter ever. We did not many snowstorms a subzero weather, we just had so many days of gloom and chilly weather. So when the sunshine came back, we followed it. Even though I sequestered myself in the library today, I sat under the skylight. And I managed to eat both lunch and dinner outside. It seemed that was everyone else's plan too, as waits for the patio were almost an hour everywhere we went.
Now if I could only figure out how to study outside.
