Why is May (H/A/F) hoping for cold weather at the beginning of April?

Because she's absolutely bonkers!
OK, seriously: April Fool jokes involved? Perhaps snowballs?

Is May's name relevant?

Is she hoping it will be below a particular temperature? That a particular weather condition will happen?

Is she hoping for cold weather on a specific date? Dates? More a more generally-defined time period?

Does she want the temperature to be below freezing?

Is her location relevant? Her profession? Or hobbies?

Is she going to be doing something particular during that week? Spending the week in a particular place? Is somebody else going to be doing something particular? Spending it in a particular place?

Will it being cold benefit her? Somebody else? Disadvantage somebody?

Will a certain event take place if it is cold? Not take place?

Are plants relevant? Animals?

Will May do something different if it is cold than if it is warm? Does she want an excuse to stay inside? To put the heating on? To wear warm clothes? Is there a relevant other person or people? A relevant pet? Pest animal?

Is there a relevant rule, or policy, that if the temperature goes below x degrees May will be allowed to do something? Or won't have to do something?

Is a bet relevant?

Is car maintenance relevant? Does May always (each year) want first week of April to be cold?
Will she benefit financially if it gets cold? Emotionally? Socially?

Did she buy some food and her fridge is broken and noone can fix it until the second week of April? Does she want to keep outside something that needs cold temperatures? Is May sick?

Did she buy some food and her fridge is broken and noone can fix it until the second week of April? Not quite, but close enough for the spoiler. Once again, an embarrassinly easy puzzle. Does she want to keep outside something that needs cold temperatures? Is May sick?

********SPOILER********

May is yours truly Doriana in disguise. Half a year after having moved out, next weekend my former roommate is coming back to get his stuff, including the fridge. I probably won't get a new fridge until the week after that, so I'm hoping for cold weather so that I can keep my groceries on the balcony.


Well done, RedWine. Please also check out my two other puzzles, folks.

oh, I would still prefer Ravioli for a week rather than crappy German April weather =)
