Moving to Springfield in the spring time

I was raised in the far south, where the weather was always hot and humid.

I was accustomed to running the air conditioner just about year round, and our house was not equipped with any type of heating system.

Torrential downpours, thunderstorms and hurricanes were common concerns. After graduating from college, I had some difficulty finding a job in my field. I finally sent resumes out across the country. I was hired by an up-and-coming company located in Springfield, Missouri. I knew absolutely knothing about Missouri. I couldn’t have found the state on a map of the United States. However, everything I learned about the company got me more and more excited about accepting the position. I packed my possessions and drove north and west for more than twenty hours. It was a long and tiring trip. I arrived in Springfield in the spring, right when the first flowers were blooming. I was totally enchanted by the beauty of the area. The abundance of tiny pink blossoms decorating the delicate branches of redbud trees was absolutely stunning. Not long after I arrived, the dogwood trees along the hillsides began blooming with brilliant white flowers. The weather was absolutely perfect. It was just warm enough for a light jacket. There was a lot of rain, but I was accustomed to wet conditions. The summer temperature climbed into the mid-eighties. For me, that didn’t feel overly hot. Even the humidity wasn’t anything to complain about. When the foliage began to turn colors in the fall, Springfield looked like something out of a postcard. I was delighted by the fresh produce and the chysanthemums. I was not prepared for how quickly winter would arrive. It seemed as if one day I was wearing a sweatshirt, and the next day I was buying sweaters, winter boots, a wool coat, gloves and a hat. I needed to purchase a snow shovel and an ice scraper and stepping outside was torture.
