Sounds similar to Idaho weather. There is a saying that goes on around here "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes". A real kicker in the end - in haiku the goal is to surprise in the end, but at the same time make it feel as though it was inevitable. You did that, "to a tee"... sorry couldn't resist the golf reference, hehe ;)

Thanks, Timothy. Idaho, eh? My daughter, son-in-law and grand daughter live in Pullman, WA, but work at the university in Moscow. What part of Idaho are you from? Jack

No golfers, just crazy Oklahoma weather, including a massive hailstorm a week ago that caused millions in damage. Spring is always bad weather season here, what with tornadoes, hail storms, wind gusts, sand storms... Jack
