As we get closer to May, one thing I'm really excited about is getting back outside to grill. I'm writing this as I'm sitting in Phoenix and it reminds me of the different mindset you have around weather. Here, the weather is warm most of the year and hot the rest of the time. By April, you can probably break out your shorts and keep them around until probably October. For those that don't absolutely love 100+ temperatures, you'll try to stay indoor as much as you can during the summer and be outside to enjoy the weather the rest of the year.
On the east coast, people tend to hibernate in the winter. This particular winter brought us a lot of snow and cold. Personally, I'm glad to be done with it and looking forward to being outside with a beer (Sam Adams, of course) and the grill fired up.
