Spring Mix

No, dear reader, this is not “The beginnings of a great meal” as your local supermarket would have us believe, but what our weather actually delivered earlier this year: According to my 2015 desktop calendar ‘Spring begins March 20’ and so it led other poor mortals who reside in Englewood to look forward to the blossoming of flowers and discarding of winter clothing until next year.

Not so fast! Above is a “sleet” video I took to mark the occasion, followed by the “snow shot” below later on the same morning:

Even a mixologist (not tied to isobars and other kinds of bars) would have been flummoxed, not to speak of the numerous local and national meteorologists on TV who were to a man – or woman – blindsided. Then came an onslaught of unusual – referred to as ‘extreme’ on TV and cable channels – weather for that time of year, and everyone was asked to exercise patience in weathering the unusual, what else, weather. So here we are on what many countries term Labor Day, that is, May the First, and we can now labor on and certainly get rid of the trappings of  winter, which has thankfully departed our fair city for the time being at least – hope springs eternal!

Let me, therefore, depart on a hopeful note by displaying an exuberant flowering of a tree right outside the room where I write:

  1. magnificent post, very informative. I ponder why the other specialists of this sector don’t understand this.
    You should continue your writing. I am confident, you’ve a huge readers’ base already!

    1. I’m glad you liked it. I’ve collected six months of my writings as “Azim Lewis Mayadas Blog [January – June 2015]: some of my thoughts, written down – vol. 1” with Dark Green Cover that is now available via Amazon.
      PS: An earlier unformatted version of the 106-page book with Light Green Cover was supposed to have been deleted by Amazon end-June, but it still carries it despite my complaint last week, causing some confusion. I’ve since been assured that the faulty issue has been removed, but I felt it was important that my disclaimer should be made public, especially to those who have commented favorably on my blogs so as to avoid any untoward purchase of the earlier version – thanks!
      PPS: The forthcoming Volume 2 (July – December 2015) will I hope not suffer from the glitch that the release of Volume 1 suffered from at the time of rollout last month.

  2. I together with my guys appeared to be checking out the good guides from your web site and then immediately came up with a terrible suspicion I had not thanked the website owner for those tips.
