Welcome to Spring/Summer on the plains. 
Really it kind of sucks-- and is more or less miserable, with random splatterings of beautiful days mixed in.
I say "Spring/Summer" because, well, Spring doesn't really hang out too long around these parts. The two (spring and summer) get sort of distorted and jumbled together. It's rather annoying actually. 
One of the things I HATE most about living here is the WIND! It sucks in the Winter. You know when it snows it's too busy being windy for the snow to land gracefully on the ground- where it belongs. It sucks in the Spring because it makes an otherwise mild and/or warm day, COLD (because you know a hurricane force gust breeze is always cold- like wind is incapable of being another than cold). 
Moral of the story: Wind is annoying and SUCKS... ruins everything. 
ALSO... another joy of living on the plains is TORNADOES. Wooot woot. Once we really get into the swing of spring you can watch he clouds roll into anywhere from 1-3pm everyday over the mountains. To the average person this may sound breath-taking.... well, let me tell you "Mr-Average-Person" it scares the crap out of me. You see when you mix rain/cold front with WARM/HOT temps you often get this:


Maybe I'm completely off my rocker but the idea of some spiraling gateway to OZ (you know, the Wicked Witch of the West, flying Monkies, clacking red heels....) really doesn't do anything good for me. 
Not really into things coming from the sky with the sole purpose of DESTRUCTION.
Not for me. 

Yeah... I'm totally siked for Spring time, then Summer to follow. Ugh huh...

This cracked me up!! I was just bitching to my Husband today how it would be such a great day if it were not for the stinking wind! Thank you mountains!

Yeah, we get wind here. We still haven't had "spring" yet. It snowed yesterday. Sigh.

Well one good thing about living out in Oz, you could always do that item on the bucket list to follow a twister haha!

We need to talk! I've been so busy, I haven't had that much free time!
