A Chill

Today it was necessary to go outside and mow the lawn.  Nothing unusual for a Saturday afternoon in Spring.  However, today it was necessary to put a parka and boots on before mowing.  I just want to say that if it is cold enough to have to wear a parka, grass should NOT be growing.

And FYI, no this is NOT me mowing.  But when I found it when hunting on line for a good picture to go with this post . . . how could I POSSIBLY resist.
