temps

I am sure that curiousity about Indianapolis day-to-day weather is very limited, but it is the world I inhabit, and I react strongly to what is happening outside, the curse, I suppose of a passion for gardening which is often about tracking daily weather -- even though such tracking is fairly useless right now, in terms of the garden. My weather compulsion doesn't stop because I cannot garden.

Several weeks ago, it rained days on end, and we lost sky and sun. I was in great despair. In the last week, we experienced great cold, about 8 degrees (F)on Friday morning rising to a high in the very low 20s. But the sun shined throughout, and even with bitter cold, I am ok when I get to see and feel sunshine.

Now it is 52 degrees (F). Almost paradise.
