If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes.
I first heard that saying while visiting Maine, but I think there's some truth to it here, too.
Friday was absolutely beautiful. I took in the sunshine and enjoyed a 75-minute walk through the neighborhoods of Coplay. It was so nice out I didn't wear a coat and, at one point, I even took off my cardigan sweater.
Saturday wasn't bad but it was definitely colder. By Sunday, the winds made it feel downright frigid.
