The Bob and Weave Game

The bit of very warm weather we experienced over the weekend hasn’t fooled any of us who have lived in this neighborhood for a lifetime.

The oilman is still going to be taking our money to heat our homes as the warm weather over the weekend was nothing more than the annual March tease.

If March were a boxer we could have called the early spring a bob and a weave.

The cold came back with a force on Monday. Tuesday wasn’t much better and now the weather forecasters are predicting a gradual warming trend heading into the weekend.

Don’t be fooled by any of it.

We are starved for the warm weather. It has teased us with a taste.

Going into the second week of March is never like a walk into spring.

It remains a fool’s game, seeking the warmth in early March.

We have a long way to go till spring.

The taste of warmth was nice but it was all about smoke and mirrors.

Don’t put your winter coats into storage, yet.
