Hrududu

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!

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

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.

we slowly invented brains (La Lechera), Saturday, 1 March 2014 23:47 (eight years ago) link

I'm going to lose my shit when it's actually spring. Run everywhere, drink beer in the streets, dive into the lake even though I can't swim.

Jeff, Saturday, 1 March 2014 23:51 (eight years ago) link

f u all, ski heil!

brimstead, Sunday, 2 March 2014 00:03 (eight years ago) link

Next weekend the local ice cream stand opens AND the time changes. Yesss.

tokyo rosemary, Sunday, 2 March 2014 01:31 (eight years ago) link

I can't wait for the UPS drivers to break out the shorts. That's when I know winter has ended.

tokyo rosemary, Sunday, 2 March 2014 01:34 (eight years ago) link

Today was pretty pleasant-- > 40, no precipitation, drove around with the window down singing at full window-up volume. Time changes this weekend. Could be (has been!) much worse.
As predicted, things are improving.

we slowly invented brains (La Lechera), Saturday, 8 March 2014 00:46 (eight years ago) link

today i went with coat unzipped, and ate a peach (i did not actually eat a peach), it was 33

j., Saturday, 8 March 2014 00:58 (eight years ago) link

why would you say that you ate a peach if you didn't eat one?

we slowly invented brains (La Lechera), Saturday, 8 March 2014 01:29 (eight years ago) link

snows amelting, the mood for modernist pastiche is abroad

j., Saturday, 8 March 2014 01:51 (eight years ago) link

When will the snow melt?

I got the glares, the mutterings, the snarls (President Keyes), Saturday, 8 March 2014 01:54 (eight years ago) link

well, last year it snowed in may, so. blooming buzzing weather confusion anticipated.

j., Saturday, 8 March 2014 01:57 (eight years ago) link

all this week the weather was so much better. this weekend is my birthday. next week brings the first paycheck from my new job. i get paid on WEDNESDAYS. pretty into march right now, pretty into life. can not wait to drink beer outside and read on my porch.

still wondering this.

clouds, Saturday, 8 March 2014 04:38 (eight years ago) link

I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.

first in with Michelangelo!

Aimless, Saturday, 8 March 2014 04:49 (eight years ago) link

huh, i know the eliot poem but the reference escaped me.

clouds, Saturday, 8 March 2014 04:57 (eight years ago) link

Oh - it made me think of The Lake Isle of Innisfree. But Prufrock doesn't say anything about an unzipped coat. Googling those terms led to this http://eatapeachforlove.blogspot.com/ which is interesting.

Je55e, Saturday, 8 March 2014 18:02 (eight years ago) link

I never get references because I'm an ignoramus, but I will always eat a peach (unless it's canned or in a gross individual plastic cup).

we slowly invented brains (La Lechera), Saturday, 8 March 2014 18:10 (eight years ago) link

gawd you guyz are such marchkills, i'm just gonna stay inside and eat oatmeal now just like stupid old winter

j., Saturday, 8 March 2014 18:32 (eight years ago) link

It's your fault for being unintelligible with your poetry and peaches iirc. Anyway it's gonna be up and down for a while here regardless.

springtime whims are accountable to no man or woman

j., Saturday, 8 March 2014 19:48 (eight years ago) link

Love March and Spring but wish they'd hold off on the time change until late May or early June.

Easy to say when you two don't live in desolate snow covered wastelands ;) we need that sun!

time should always go back, never forward

death and darkness and other night kinda shit (crüt), Sunday, 9 March 2014 16:53 (eight years ago) link

no way man! time has to keep moving forward or we will be stuck in this mess forever. ahead lies an abundance of earthly delights, which reminds me that this is almost xtc weather!

we slowly invented brains (La Lechera), Sunday, 9 March 2014 16:58 (eight years ago) link

Love the time change. It's like a holiday for me.

Jeff, Sunday, 9 March 2014 17:06 (eight years ago) link

True, living in Texas I have never understood the reason for DST. All it ever did was make bedtime difficult when I was a kid. Perhaps TX could opt out! Sum sets damn close to 9 pm in south Texas in the summer.

*tera, Sunday, 9 March 2014 17:35 (eight years ago) link

tbh i loved that shit as a kid. go outside and ball up until you were tired, go swimming late, just do late stuff all the time

daylight savings time deepens my resentment of the forces of social control

j., Sunday, 9 March 2014 18:10 (eight years ago) link

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

*tera, Sunday, 9 March 2014 18:31 (eight years ago) link

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.
