The end of a weekend,

The end of a weekend, or, more precisely, the end of a Minnesota weekend. I golfed three rounds on Saturday. The first round was played in rather cool weather, the second in decent weather, and the third was played under sunny skies; so sunny, in fact, I suffered a slightly sunburned head. Then, come Sunday, there's four inches of snow on the ground. Does this state make any freaking sense at all? The answer, of course, is no. Still, as I pondered why I continue to endure this wacky climate, I came up with a few reasons. First and foremost, I still enjoy being in close proximity with much of my family. That's hard for anyone to break free from. Second, I'm only four years into the workforce and I'm trying to build up the much valued "experience" that employers so value. Once I can start to pick and choose my journalism jobs, I'll probably be far more likely to cast a wide net and start looking around. Finally, the change in seasons does help to fully appreciate great weather. I love looking for the first robin of the year, watching the snow let loose its seasonal grip and surrender to the spring. Granted, it can be a major pain in the ass (see this weekend for why), but I think I can handle it for a couple more years.
