I made a deal with my coat, back in April, that it wouldn't see the light of day until late September/early October. I didn't care how cold, windy and rainy it was during the following months, I was going to remain steadfast in my stance. The way I see it, if the weather is operating the way it should, the temperatures in April should be in the 60s at the lowest, and then slowly ascend through the spring and summer months. With my apologies to Al Gore, that really hasn't changed despite the other magical things that are happening globally. So when I woke up this morning, and I saw that the temperatures were in the low 40s, almost two weeks into May, I was not a happy camper. I looked at my coat, and told it that it wasn't the boss of me, and I went to grab a sweater and a sports coat, and that held me down in the cold temps. Was I a bit cold? Yes. Is it possible that some type of cold will overtake me in the next couple of days? Maybe. But do I have the upper hand over my jacket? Hell yes.

I'm not even going to pretend I have a lot to say today. Its rainy, I'm operating one less than 3 hours sleep, and its Monday.

I had this same internal debate this morning. It's May. But it's 45 degrees + rainy... The second voice won out and I put my winter coat on. It's a lighter one so it's pretty versatile anyway.

Well you know I will bust out a leather coat in the middle of August. It's cold outside and I had no issues pulling out my winter coat.
