Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde aren't any more changeable than the Kansas weather.

Was it just a week ago that we had 9 or 10 inches of snow on the ground?

Yet yesterday, I could comfortably walk outside at 7:15 in the morning. What a treat to get off the treadmill and back outside!

And then the weatherman reminded me of another tidbit: There was a 95-degree swing in temperatures from last Thursday to this Thursday - from -17 degrees to 78 degrees.

It went from a record low to a record high in a mere seven days. The February weather could certainly be defined as having a split personality, just like the famous Jekyll and Hyde.

A week ago, the water hydrant looked like it had frosting slathered on top.

Just seven days ago, the barnyard looked like a busy interchange for animal tracks.

A winter wonderland glimpse of the grainery ...

... doesn't look nearly as picturesque when the sun melts away the Currier and Ives moment.

And a weed is just a weed ...

... instead of a work of art.

Our 78-degree temperatures are gone today, but it's still supposed to be unseasonably warm for February. Get out and enjoy your weekend: It could very well look like this again before we can truly say hello to spring.

I like Mr. Hyde better, too, but Dr. Jekyll makes for some pretty photos. Thanks for stopping by the KFRM blog and taking time to comment.
