on the other hand: my front yard is a pit of mud and standing water, and I am not looking forward to being devoured by mosquitoes =.o

ice cream!!!

Brackish water! 50-something! That's gonna be us come this weekend, with any luck. I just want to not wear a hat every time I leave the building.

I was just thinking today it's almost Easter and I am still wearing my wool hats. I will probably be wearing them until May.

tokyo rosemary, Thursday, 28 March 2013 02:40 (nine years ago) link

part of me is beginning to look forward to night swimming.

Lolchicago: 35° and the coffee shop and the cafe on my street have their fronts wide open.

Je55e, Friday, 29 March 2013 13:52 (nine years ago) link

I haven't left the house for almost 3 days.

Jeff, Friday, 29 March 2013 15:26 (nine years ago) link

have had the weirdest most lingering cold all week. was out of work 2 days, spent last night sweating like a bastard. fuk u march.

Jeff "Skink" Baxter (Jon Lewis), Friday, 29 March 2013 15:34 (nine years ago) link

is it time for an april thread? because we are getting successive waves of awesome thunderstorms down here, and I am over the moon about it.

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 05:29 (nine years ago) link

it is 35 and "blustery" here, so maybe not quite yet

mookieproof, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 06:03 (nine years ago) link

i prefer my weather to bluster tbh

mookieproof, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 06:04 (nine years ago) link

I think this thread will suffice because it will still document the painful slowness of the onset of spring.

I'm jumping for joy over here b/c it's supposed to be 50-60 for the next four days. Four days!!! No gloves! A jacket!!

and that sounds like a gong-concert (La Lechera), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 12:11 (nine years ago) link

I can go with jacket. Still prob medium coat weather for me. It takes a month or so to shake of the residual winter bone chill.

Jeff, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 12:26 (nine years ago) link

Yeah I'll still be wearing a hat. Also I guess high temp today is 42, which is nice but not what I thought. I want it to be warm enough to smell the mud.

and that sounds like a gong-concert (La Lechera), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 12:38 (nine years ago) link

I will probably keep wearing my hat until it is 70.

I am getting tired of wearing boots.

tokyo rosemary, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 14:06 (nine years ago) link

I went for a walk on Monday, it was almost warm enough.

tokyo rosemary, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 14:09 (nine years ago) link

I don't mind walking in the cold -- it's has its unique charms, but I love walking in general -- but I am DEF tired of boots. I've already busted out the sneakers (for walking).
Today seems like a mighty fine day for a walk, actually.

and that sounds like a gong-concert (La Lechera), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 14:20 (nine years ago) link

I forgot to mention that I saw several falling snowflakes on Monday, but I'm convinced it was just a lighthearted joke from nature.

hell yes, it's april
APRIL!

and that sounds like a gong-concert (La Lechera), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 14:52 (nine years ago) link

Is it always this windy in the spring? I feel like I would have noticed it in the 10 years I've lived in Brooklyn but this year it seems especially cruel that the sun shines and the "temperature" is like 55 but HAHAHAHA NO ACTUALLY THERE IS BITTER WIND FREEZING YOU.

My eyes keep watering so bad from all the wind.

tokyo rosemary, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 14:56 (nine years ago) link

I know! Maybe I just really want to go for a bike ride where my ears and face don't freeze.

lets just remember to blame the patriarchy for (in orbit), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 14:56 (nine years ago) link

The wind is my enemy. I think it actually goes through my body and I do not appreciate that.

and that sounds like a gong-concert (La Lechera), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 15:09 (nine years ago) link

I want more April showers! We had some impressive straight-line winds ahead of the front that blew through here last night... popped my balcony door open and then slammed it shut. Guess it wasn't latched.

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 16:14 (nine years ago) link

I haven't owned a hat or scarf all winter, and I finally just got gloves a couple weeks ago.

Je55e, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 20:08 (nine years ago) link

You're nuts! I wear a scarf and various hats Oct-May and then I switch to my lite scarf.

Was totally wrong abt weather today btw. It's cold.

and that sounds like a gong-concert (La Lechera), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 20:11 (nine years ago) link

77 on Tuesday!!!

Goodbye, March!!

tokyo rosemary, Monday, 8 April 2013 03:11 (nine years ago) link

enormous amts of rain falling over here

and that sounds like a gong-concert (La Lechera), Thursday, 18 April 2013 12:49 (nine years ago) link

It is raining and blustery here this morning, so I walked to work! So fantastic.

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Thursday, 18 April 2013 14:53 (nine years ago) link

There are plants growing visibly from one day to the next outside the windows now. It was warm enough to not wear a scarf on Monday, totally gorgeous. One week til May!!

and that sounds like a gong-concert (La Lechera), Wednesday, 24 April 2013 14:58 (nine years ago) link

silflay! I spent a fair amount of time at work this afternoon doing GIS searches for rabbits in tiny tents.

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Friday, 26 April 2013 00:50 (nine years ago) link

!! aren't they wonderful?!?
those are just regular sized blades of grass btw -- i could probably hold two rabbits in the not-very-large palm of my hand

also it's getting niiiiiiiiiiiiice here, and not just one day either -- like a couple days in a row. i'm feelin it.

and that sounds like a gong-concert (La Lechera), Friday, 26 April 2013 01:17 (nine years ago) link

Hrududu

brad palsy (Jon Lewis), Friday, 26 April 2013 01:42 (nine years ago) link

i don't hear any hrududu but this partic warren is about 2 feet from a street with heavy foot traffic (and occasional car traffic)

one month passes...

just a small boomp to say that spring is finally here -- it goes between being kinda hot and kinda cool, lots of rain, lots of moodiness, some thunder/lightning, lots of very beautiful hours followed by a huge tantrum. good times! springtimes.

this is what i was excited about in march.

also? last day of may, that officially concludes our season itt.
until next year!

boomp

mookieproof, Friday, 31 May 2013 20:33 (eight years ago) link

it's raining balls here, love it. spring is my favorite week (lol cleveland weather joke)

lipitor retriever (brownie), Friday, 31 May 2013 22:22 (eight years ago) link

nine months pass...

Stupid wintery mix today. 14 out of 17 days in March have been below average temp and it is forecasted that the next 14 days will be below average as well. 10" of snow this March, a third of what we've received all winter. Worst fucking March ever.

This march isn't looking any better. Hard to get excited since the weather outlook is dismal and I'm already broken from winter. I think may is going to be the new march.

Jeff, Saturday, 1 March 2014 13:31 (eight years ago) link

It's gonna suck for a while and then eventually it'll be like FORTY. Anything will be an improvement over the last 2 months.

Once it gets to 35 I'm going to dance through the streets.

ruth rendell writing as (askance johnson), Saturday, 1 March 2014 15:47 (eight years ago) link

i remember two marches ago it was like 85 degrees a lot of times. global cooling more like!

I have the SPRING FEELING today! I don't know what's up with me but I'm feeling a little manic, enjoying it though

kinder, Saturday, 1 March 2014 16:04 (eight years ago) link

Oh man. Spring feeling. That's among my most treasured feelings. Enjoy it!

we slowly invented brains (La Lechera), Saturday, 1 March 2014 16:34 (eight years ago) link

lol 6-10 inches of snow expected here on monday

mookieproof, Saturday, 1 March 2014 20:36 (eight years ago) link

yeah here too. i'm frustrated about it. i like to not go to work but i can't just miss two days of work like that! f u march

sent from my butt (harbl), Saturday, 1 March 2014 23:44 (eight years ago) link

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.
