Years ago, a coworker told me about a plumber friend of his who was from a northern state (one bordering Canada). He finally reached the point where he'd had enough of the winters there. He decided the thing to do was to get in his truck and start driving south. How far south? When someone asked him, "how come you have an extension cord sticking out of the grille of your truck?", he'd know he'd driven far enough.
It's spring time in North Carolina - time to watch the seasonal migratory patterns. Time to watch the convoy of U-Haul trucks filled with people fed up with northern winters heading south on I-95 towards Florida. Time to watch the convoy of cars filled with people tired of Florida summers heading north on I-95 for the summer.
I don't really have a point to make - this was just an amusing thought that crossed my mind while driving into work this morning.
Last year, end of the march, drove down I-95 to FL for northern colleges' spring training. Went to see grandson in his senior college year. Was amazed to see all the pine pollen, and all the campers, 5th wheel trainers heading north. Must have been the migration of all the snow birds heading north.
I thought you get so accustomed to weather patterns that it becomes second nature to you.
I`m lucky enough that our weather pattern is unpredictable hot stretches then breaks of rain don't have to travel out of state to enjoy 4 seasons
