...our first 90 degree day of the year today. I think. I haven't heard that we actually hit that temp today, but is hot and we are trying to hold off on turning on the AC for a while longer.
...a killer allergy season (which I have been whining about for days!).
...ice hockey play-off season. Somehow we ended up with an amazing ice hockey team. In the middle of the desert. They made the playoffs their first season--last year--and again this year!
...the beginning of the presidential election season. The actual election is more than a year and a half away but the presidential candidates are descending on our city already!
...it's also festival season. Every weekend in April and May is booked solid with so many different activities to do since the weather is great and there are so many organizations that hold their big annual events before the weather gets too hot. This weekend we have the Scottish Highland Games, several community fun runs, a couple of art festivals, a quilt show, our county fair, two rodeo events...the list is pretty long this weekend!
