Note: Today’s Tribune carried a weather story about “May’s iffy weather makes it the month of maybe.” Reporter Gerry Smith referenced this CTA Tattler post from last May. I thought I would repost it since it’s certainly germaine in this weather.
The last few weeks constitute what I call the “tweener” season for weather.
It’s hard to figure out what to wear to work when it’s cool in the morning and
it’s supposed to get warmer.
There’s the guy in short sleeves when it’s barely 50 degrees. And you wonder,
what was he thinking? And of course it’s mostly guys, but I’ve seen a few women
with warm dreams.
Yes, there are dreams of summer, but why not WAIT till summer to live the
dream? Or at least get past April and early May.
Then there are the strange ones whom I refer to above. Such as the guy
pictured here. While this is certainly a crappy photo from my cell phone, it
does show the dichotomies wrought by the season. The epitome of the “tweener”
season. This guy is wearing a thin vest and tie with the alpine hat.
I suppose it could be a fashion statement.
