April Showers Bring My Fury

Effin’ fudge. Are you supposed to get Seasonal Affective Disorder in mid-April? Or at this point is it Seasonal Pissed-off Disorder? Weeks ago I had turned off my heating system’s pilot flame for the year. Wrong. I had packed away my sweaters for the year. Wrong.

The Cherry Blossoms have come and fallen but here we are still walking through cold, wet, biting muck and knowing we’re one day closer to the swampy 100-degree oppression that will come way too soon after this dreary Sunday and tomorrow’s predicted 40 mph wind gusts.

Worst of all it’s made me become the very thing I hate — someone who talks about the weather a lot.

    i love it. the air is fresh and you can open up all windows w/t danger of dust. i hate it. you can’t jog.

    I’m just glad it’s not me for a change. Dreary is the word that comes to mind, but we need the rain so I put up with it. May flowers and all that…

    I am a writer for New Orleans metblogs and I will be in D.C. for a day this week. I only have about 24 hours there – what should I do? What is the top attraction? Any great bars you can receommend?

    thanks so much!

    Heather — I’m not sure what you’re looking to do, but the best touristy thing to do is to go to the Mall where you can visit a lot of monuments and great museums (art, air & space, natural history, Holocaust). For nightlife I’m not sure of your tastes but you probably want to check out Georgetown. Enjoy!
