A Letter to Mother Nature

Dear Mother Nature,

I know I asked for moisture after fire season came early, but enough already.  I'm tired of riding in the snow and cold.  It's almost the end of May, can you turn on the warm?  Pretty, pretty please?

I didn't even ride last weekend because of the cold and fog, and I love to ride.  Sometimes enough is enough.

Tired of wearing eighty billion layers just to ride.

Hmmm, in your next letter, maybe you could suggest toning down the wind a bit? We've had some beautiful days, but I get discouraged when the wind is blowing more than 25 mph!

Yeah... I'm ready to go outside with out layers!

Dear Gun Diva;

Thank you for your letter. I empathize with your situation, however at the moment my ability to control the weather and send you a proper Spring is severely compromised. It seems that Father Time, Cupid and the Tooth Fairy have been up to absolutely no good of late and they have completely destroyed my weather system.

In the meantime, I suggest you toughen up your mitochondria, and suck up a wee bit of cold discomfort like a big girl.

I have turned off and turned back on the heat in the house TWICE now. WTH? One day I'm sweating and have to close the house up and turn on the fans to keep it cool and the next...on with the heat!

Google weather (who is usually quite correct) lied to me today and told me I would have all morning to ride and mow.

Big, fat LIAR!

I have done nothing but watch the rain come over the monument in waves.

Even the squirrel decided this was a day to do nothing but stuff his cheeks and burrow into a deep nest.

Let's turn that into a petition to Mother Nature. I'll sign it! I'm so tired of being cold. I want to see the deep blue sky I love so much about Colorado and I want to feel the warmth of the sun. While gray is one of my favorite horse colors, it is not my color preference for the sky. It's just gotta get better soon. Maybe June?

Oh no. We are losing you. Weather deterred your riding? Are you ill? Fever? Some rare sickness? Help is on the way.

And I sympathize...been snowing and raining here for a week straight. Ugh.
