everyone always gets so excited when spring is finally here, but this is a thread for appreciating the slow onset of spring

i love how clean the streets look after the snow melts

þjóðaratkvæðagreiðsla (clouds), Friday, 1 March 2013 15:07 (eight years ago) link

and/or talking about rites of spring -- actual rites, not the band (unless you are dying to talk about the band but tbh i never felt strongly about them one way or the other)

i love the smell

this is going to be a good month. i turn 30 and i get my annual bonus on the day i turn 30, with a week off work.

longer evenings have just started becoming noticeable too.

Tioc Norris (LocalGarda), Friday, 1 March 2013 15:08 (eight years ago) link

that sounds like a plan!

this is happening in town on sunday

What you'll hear in the Fern Room is Orniphonia 2 by Chicago composer and artist Bob Snyder. Importantly, there are no actual bird sounds in this piece at all—everything is created through electronic means using analog synthesis. The compositional approach is similar to the groundbreaking Forbidden Planet (1956), the first movie with an electronic soundtrack. In that film, each character is accompanied by a unique sound created by an electronic circuit. In Orniphonia 2, the sound of each “creature” is also generated by a particular circuit. Each circuit generates patterns consisting of cycles within cycles that interact and change. The fact that a circuit producing regular interacting patterns of change can mimic a living organism reflects the fact that all living things exhibit rhythmic behavior, and that all biological life interacts with its environment in a regular way.

the first bike ride through the park to the fern room is one of the things i am looking forward to the most. i am maxed out on drama and ready for some outdoors activities prontito.

þjóðaratkvæðagreiðsla (clouds), Friday, 1 March 2013 15:16 (eight years ago) link

me too, but i brave the waters for the fern room (it's closer to me than gp too)
this weekend is super weird for a reason i will hopefully explain to you when i see you on sunday! this event has been on the calendar, which means i have to actually do it.

one thing i find difficult/challenging about spring is remembering how to do things again; slowing down in the fall is always a challenge too.

March isn't my favorite month, but February is my most hated month, so by comparison, March is pretty fucking awesome. And a sign of better things to come.

March isn't my favorite month by a long shot, but it's much much closer than, say, December.

I don't get excited about March anymore, because March is the month of false hopes. March always lets you down. But yeah, at least it's not fucking February, by far my most hated month.

it's going to be rough going here while we transition, but things will slowly get better

March is going to be a big improvement over Feb. 'cause I can get some seeds into the ground, continue trying to get in better shape, maybe travel a bit, smoke some ribs, etc

I hated March growing up because in upstate NY it was pretty much just gray, muddy, icy, slush, punctuated by the occasional blizzard. March in East Tennessee is a whole other thing, there's usually a point during the month where suddenly everything blooms in about 3 days and it's 70 and sunny. We get some more dreary weather into April, but still, it's generally beautiful. It hasn't started well this year -- 35 and gray today -- but forecast says 66 by next weekend, so here's hoping.

early to mid spring here is harsh and schizo. the air is cold and the sun is glaring. you're grateful for the extra 10-15 degrees F but it's still a little unpleasant, it's dry and dirty, everything is still dead, the sun feels pissed somehow. our last snowstorm usually isn't until may. around then it starts to soften up a little and there you are in early summer. spring is like all the coughing and drainage of congestion you have to go through before you finally kick a cold.

i was explaining this to my dad this morning -- it's not that i expect march to be so great. it's not going to be great. it's probably gonna totally suck. the big difference is that march marks the dawn of the time when i am permitted to begin to regain hope for the future not sucking as badly as the present.

in november, that is deferred for like 4-5 months; now, it's going to be maybe 4-5 weeks

however shitty the forecast is for the next few weeks, this represents an improvement imo and i am going to continue to rejoice and gather energy for the oncoming springtime bloom.

I was 8 or 9 and figured if the time could be changed and you lose or gain an hour then what was real?

Just seen a glorious sunset, it feels like the first in a long time. Saying that there been some wonderful winter sunrises during the shit weather. The first sight of spring gives me a jolt of optimism and gaiety, which has usually dissipated badly by the summer, but still it is nice while it lasts.

One of the women who work at my local deli says today should be considered a holiday.

tokyo rosemary, Sunday, 9 March 2014 19:10 (seven years ago) link

when i first learned of daylight savings, i thought it meant i would lose an hour of sleep every night until the fall ;_;

i think it's a little too early now -- i remember when it was the last sunday in april. late march/early april would be better imo. also it kind of bothers me that 'standard' time is only in use 1/3 of the year

willing to bet this has been the hottest English day inside the first two weeks of March since records began. so many butterflies

the telegraph website says temps got to 19 c but if you look at the gravesend observations you can see that temperatures exceeded 20 c

it's almost as if they don't want to acknowledge gravesend exists

not Gravesend, but I was in the countryside (near Northampton, in fact), teaching at an extracurricular residential school. it was, at one point, positively sweltering

Snowed here and the UK apparently. Shut everything down too. No buses running businesses closed etc etc.
Flurries of snow have settled but I bet it's light compared to places where it snows more frequently. I guess the ability to prepare for things like this comes with more frequent experience of it.

it's more than the weather for me -- the cold season (nov-feb) is accompanied by a slew of holidays that i don't care about/would prefer to ignore and a hibernation period i find stultifying.

it's more than the weather for me -- the cold season (nov-feb) is accompanied by a slew of holidays that i don't care about/would prefer to ignore and a hibernation period i find stultifying. March-October brings increasing sun, warmth, AND people. that's important to me. i didn't realize how important it was for a long time but it is important to me!!

In the UK, we've just had the wettest February on record; they don't keep wind records but I'd happily bet it's been the windiest, too. The woods are a carnage of fallen trees and the fields are shin-deep in water but the days are heavier with light and the birds are singing so I'll take it.

I was out yesterday evening walking through advanced quagmire in the rain, even grassy areas are so saturated you have to watch your footing on hills. The daffodils are coming up nicely though.

It’s here!! This winter was kind and merciful compared to last year. Not the weather so much (though that too) but circumstances. Proud I’m still in one piece and 100% ready for SPRING!!!

Bastard Lakes (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Monday, 1 March 2021 09:37 (seven months ago) link

very much November weather here this morning, dense fog and cold. Such low visibility that when I let my dog off the lead he was completely out of sight for five minutes.

calzino, Monday, 1 March 2021 09:46 (seven months ago) link

This year I’m not as excited about March bc I’m unemployed and this is my deadline for beginning my job search in earnest. The weather is def getting better though.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 1 March 2021 13:29 (seven months ago) link

It was 72 here yesterday, and the trees are budding. Birds everywhere, spring on the wing.

x-posting my blunder:

March is just a slightly less aggro February here. Having to wait until late April/early May to experience spring for a split second before summer sets in is one of the things I hate the most about living in Quebec.

We’ll also be going from 5 to -17°C within less than 24h. How exciting.

We should poll the cruelest month.

The cruelest month is December. Also spring is the least sucky of all seasons. .

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 1 March 2021 16:17 (seven months ago) link

Growing up in the Northeast, spring was my least favorite season. I remember it as a slurry of dirty snow, muddy boots, damp mittens and dead yellow grass poking through during thaws. I never understood the appeal of the season til I moved to East Tennessee, where it really does that Bambi thing where everything suddenly flowers in mid-to-late March, we get highs from 65 to 75, and it is just totally gorgeous (if hard on the sinuses).

take it to the Hell Yes It's September thread, Spring-haters

It’s fucking HEAVENLY in TN in the spring — dreamy even when it’s “cold”

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 1 March 2021 20:01 (seven months ago) link

I woke up, read all your posts about beautiful spring weather, and was consumed with envy because it's been cold and rainy and gray here and I didn't expect it to change for another few weeks. Went out to walk the dog, and it turns out to be the most beautiful sunny spring day, just perfect.

I don't have to work today except for class prep, so I'm going to go for a long walk in the sun and listen to a Springsteen concert from 1977.

Dogshit, surely. The melt revealing the hundreds and hundreds of shits people thought the snow excused them from picking up. Now all semi liquified.

Supposed to be 60 in a few days! Part of the thrill of March is the variation in temps bc it makes the good days feel extra extra extra good

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Friday, 5 March 2021 14:54 (seven months ago) link

It's true – the current forecast says we'll be hitting 7°C on Tuesday and 11°C on Wednesday, which feels like a small miracle right now. Too bad we'll still be stuck at sub zero temperatures this weekend, as I'm supposed to go for a physically distanced walk with some friends.
