|It okay to frolic in October, especially in a t-shirt!|
I wore long sleeves all day yesterday and felt perfectly comfortable. Today, I'm wearing short sleeves and my gladiators. Pretty much what I'll wear the rest of the week, given the weather reports. But in the back of my mind, I'm trying to figure out if Ammon would look at me sideways if I pulled out my skiing boots and started breaking them in again for the season. If he'll roll his eyes a little bit when I start the pull up opening dates for the various ski resorts. Truth be told, I hate cold weather. I don't like it one single bit. I just like snow. If we could have snow and 50 degrees, I would be over the moon with joy. I've brainwashed Ammon into liking it when I have the thermostat in the apartment set at 80 degrees. In fact, last winter he was wearing sweaters inside. I don't think I've ever been more effective at bringing someone to my way of thinking.

And since I posted pictures of Colorado winters way back in the day when almost none of you knew I existed... I'm sprinkling them throughout this post. As a reminder of what I love, and of what I don't love. Like seeing my beloved scooter buried under a mountain of ugly parking lot snow. Sigh.
So really, winter makes me feel like I have multiple personality disorder. I love it, but I really hate it, too. And frankly, as amazing as fall sounds, Colorado doesn't always subscribe to the concept of fall... like I said, we can't make up our minds as to whether we should waterski, or snowshoe it seems.
Does your state experience fall? Or do you go straight from summer to winter in a flash?
