Well, that happened.

Ha. This totally describes the weather here in Alberta!!!

Well, you do live at the wrong place then..
Greetings from Athens, Greece.

Laura Rawlings said...

This is totally the weather in the UK! No wonder we're so nuts about the weather, we're always waiting for that sunny day. Fortunately, today it is sunny, hooray! (Oh wait, that's probably that one day in March where we all get too optimistic!)

Danielle said...

"That day.." is also the day when I go out and buy 10 sleeveless tops, take out all my spring shoes, and open all the windows out of eagerness and desperation. And then it snows. Sometimes New England just feels cruel.

pinklegwarmers said...

But we have a 'warm' weekend coming up again!

Gina said...

Luckily not the truth about the seasons in Barcelona! We live in an eternal spring-summer weather and we often complain about the heat, but when we reach "winter" (10ºC is freezing cold for us) we're complaining all the time too ha ha! In this moment we're not wearing coat in the sunny hours of the day! (And, of course, people is sunbathing and swimming at the beach!)

Christina said...

SO sad but true in DC! Visiting NYC this weekend, hoping the weather report gets better by then! I'm dreading wearing my heavy coat around but I know it'll be too cold for a light jacket. Sigh...

Jennifer said...

So true!!!!

Denise Thomas said...

Happened here in Seattle yesterday! Gorgeous and sunny. After weeks of downpours it was an amazing. uplifting day. Everyone was lighter.

true dat. : (

Jo said...

Hahaha. This couldn't be more true in NY. Oh boy. Thanks, Joanna!

dj rae said...

It's the exact opposite in Arizona. Keep on winter!

Liz M C said...

I'm a New Orleans native, so it's kinda the exact opposite for summer and winter. Summer seems to last ten miserably hot, swampy months. Then it's icy cold for the other two. But some days it's perfect.

Jennifer Beaudet said...

It's not quite that bad where I live but I feel for you all over there! You should move to California! But that's not even good enough for me. I want to move to Hawaii, where it's sunny and warm everyday, and I can paint outside! …just remember how beautiful Spring is, even if it's short! :)

Carrie said...

That one day was Tuesday. 50 and beautiful. Yesterday it was so bad my work closed. Today the INSIDE of my car was frozen and re-froze on the road....

This happened to us in Toronto this week. It was 10 degrees (50 degrees F) on Tuesday, and then we got dumped with over a foot of snow yesterday- hurrah!

livablecambridge said...

Are you going to warm us with some recap talk about the CRAY Bachelor finale and all the wild issues it brings up?!

ohnomyboots said...

I would laugh if I wasn't so depressed.

Kelley Anne said...

HaHaHa!! That feels so true right now. I hope we have a long warm summer ahead of us to make up for this winter.

Brooke said...

This couldn't be more true! We southerners finally got a taste of what a REAL winter is like and I'm not a huge fan! Come on spring!

Alice said...

this is soooo true. cannot believe the snow is flying in Beantown again. ugh. go away winter.

Jodi Fleming said...

Imoved to Oaxaca from New Zealand and boy, having summer temperatures all 'winter' here has taking some getting used to. I will be walking around in pants and a t-shirt whilst the locals are wearing boots, a thick coat and beanies!

Ceren said...

Not true for Istanbul :)

Making it Anywhere said...

Oklahoma has been a mess, now the wind is blowing every allergen known to man around so we cant even enjoy the warm weather!

bananastand said...

Without the weather (and it's crazy personality), would strangers even talk to each other? I don't think so!!

Joanna Goddard said...

@danielle, LOLed at your comment.

Joanna Goddard said...

livablecambridge, ooh, good idea. i wasn't going to write about it, but maybe we should discuss! let me see what i can come up with today xoxo thanks!!

Sarah said...

Yup, that's about how I'd describe it. I can't believe we have another seven inches of snow on the ground in the middle of March!!! Can't wait for that tiny sliver called spring!

Inside Out said...

Haha. Oh so true - I thought I would be exempt by living in TX, but not so much

Mark de Jong said...

You can just reverse the whole thing for Las Vegas...

lucinda smith said...

hahaa! YES i want to live in a place where it's always sweater weather and the trees look like they've been dripped with gold.

Julia Fain said...

bisbee said...

It was so cold and windy walking into work today I had tears streaming down my face!

Scout and Rice said...

So true. :(

Sarah Spitz said...

the last days in Germany are so sunny and warm and we are just starting spring... hope that this holds on for just a little more;-)

Ha ha. So true. Same as here in Denmark.

Hannah B. Slaughter said...

*sigh* That ONE day! I decided to go on strike against winter 2 weeks ago and refused to wear anything but a chunky sweater when going out. I learned my lesson when it snowed 3 inches one night when we were out with friends!

Jane Doe said...

Brilliant! This is exactly why I'm contemplating a move to Florida. At least until I heard that Floridians are already treating their lawns for mosquitos because of the wet winter. Is there anywhere safe and sunny? :o)

Sarah said...

So true!! Every year we have Spring for like a week then are in the heat of summer! Not complaining though after this winter I'm excited for some heat!

domonique matthews said...

I was there Tuesday. It's all anyone could talk about. Then Wednesday happened....come visit CA

Brandi Clark said...

This is so true in New York this year! I can't wait to get out of the city for a few days and be somewhere warm :)

Elise Dujardin said...

This is so accurate!

Jenna said...

This is awesome! I had a PICNIC with my daughters on Tuesday. On Wednesday we got FIFTEEN inches of snow!

~Love Lis said...

This made me laugh too! Oh spring, please come!

Patricia O'Shaughnessy said...

This is exactly how it is in Illinois! But, boy, do I love that day in March.

madiebaby said...

Yikes. I don't even want to tell you how beautiful it is (and has been) in the SF Bay Area... I just can't identify with the winter you all have had this year! I think the images on the nightly news are from another planet! Then again, we are in the midst of a massive drought, so that's not good either...

Siren Jane said...

This diagram actually made me laugh out loud at my desk because its so freakin true. Sigh

GLENDA CHILDERS said...

An accurate representation Chicago ... :)

Fondly,

Kyle said...

So true. The last couple of days of warmth have made today so much more unbearable.

WiiZii said...

Nailed it.

RG said...

Yep. Pretty much.

Lorinda Mamo said...

Am on the other side of the globe in Malta, but this so rings true here too! Good depiction :)

Shawnee said...

same here in upper michigan. unfortunately, i think we've already had that nice day in march. sigh. hurry up, summer :) xo

ps love that newest post on the spiritual age. such a good excerpt...going read the article/post now!

Megan said...

Ain't that the truth!

julie818 said...

I live in San Antonio TX, and our weather is basically the opposite of that. I'm dreading summer :(

Beth said...

reverse that and you get West Australia. all year hot then a few weeks of coolness and rain

Sammi Egan said...

Ugh- so true! That sunshine was well needed!

Jacquie said...

Oh yes, Tuesday it was 60 degrees F and the next day, winter storm warning! Here's hoping for a long warm summer!

Tim Vidra said...

So spot on!

sheepyhollow said...

Absolutely true... here in Michigan!

Cristina Diaz said...

jajajaaj true true true!!

I love this illustration - I totally relate to it having spent 5 years in Toronto! I wish people would stop cropping out the bottom part though...it seems disrepsectful to the artist. Here's the original: http://nationalpost.tumblr.com/post/6143454773/the-week-that-wasnt-by-sarah-lazarovic-toronto

Hi Joanna
I found this quite amusing because I think it's the exact opposite in Australia. Summer seems to be nearly all year round!
I referenced your post in a blog post of my own if you would like to check it out.
