Last week and the week before, we had really warm weather here in Denver. I mean like 60s and 70s warm. For that matter, we really didn't have much of a winter. We only had to run the kitchen sink overnight about once, and usully we have to do it three or four times, plus we usually get a lot omore snow than we've gotten. Suddenly, we had a blizzard last Thursday that sent a lot of folks home early (which oddly enough rendered the roadways easier to drive at 5pm than at 1pm), and then we had a sudden blorp! of snow yesterday morning. As Derek was leaving work today, he and Norman and I chatted about the weather.
Derek: Isn't it about to snow tonight and tomorrow?
Pixie: [checking her computer] Tonight and tomorrow, says Desktop Weather.
Norman: What kind of spring is this supposed to be?
Derek: Well, we didn't really have a winter, so I guess we're getting our winter now.
Norman: Yeah, but tomorrow is frickin' April!
Pixie: I think God decided that Denver has to have X amount of snow days and Y amount of sunny days, and he doesn't really care when it has what, just as long as it gets them done by the end of the calendar year.
Derek: [laughing] Totally! Now that makes more sense!
Pixie: God looks at Denver's weather the way AIA looks at your continuing ed credits: they don't care when you get them ,as long as you get them by December 31.
Derek and Norman: Baahahahaaaa!
Suddenly, an email popped up in my inbox. From five desks away, Intern Timmy hear dus and emailed one sentence:
God isn't as sadistic as the AIA. Or NCARB.
