Spring has not sprung :(

Well, I thought spring was here.  The big event that usually kicks off spring is Steeplechase.  Its a horse race here in town, where everyone gets dressed up - girls in sundresses (some wear hats) and guys sport their sear-suckered pants/shorts.  Its the event of the year in our town!  This year was my 10th Steeplechase (if I remember correctly) and the first year we had bad weather.

Typically, its slightly cool in the morning, but by the afternoon the sun is shining & you can even get sun burnt if you aren't careful.  However, God had a different plan this year.  We had rain :(  But, we made the best out of it!  Still got dressed up and headed to the field at 9:30am.  It was overcast all morning, until the rain started around 1pm.  We all huddled under the tent, thankfully it didn't give way to the heavy rain.  Wish I could have snapped a picture, definitely was a funny site seeing everyone hiding out and the few random people just running around getting soaked.  It only rained for a short time & the races started back up!

Although, the weather was yucky, I'm sure I'll remember this Steeplechase for many years to come!  If your going to get stuck outside in the rain, there's no one else I'd rather be stuck with besides my wonderful friends!  I'll post some pics soon!

The thunderstorms have continued since then all the way til this morning.  Looks like more are to come - joy :)  It makes sleeping great, the rolling thunder and flashes of lightning...as long as I'm inside & safe, its fine with me!  And these lovely storms brought back the chilly weather.  Maybe spring will come again soon!
