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'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.

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

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.

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

When will the snow melt?

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

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.

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

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.

xelab, Sunday, 9 March 2014 19:05 (eight years ago) link

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 (eight 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

mookieproof, Sunday, 9 March 2014 21:32 (eight years ago) link

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

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/se/gravesend_latest_weather.html

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

Thanks in anticipation of your opinions (nakhchivan), Sunday, 9 March 2014 21:41 (eight years ago) link

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

here is the evidence of an absurdly early springtime - sunkissed imagos galore:

and 17 F by Thurs night, at which point we set Mother Nature adrift on an ice floe.

today is gorgeous in new england, i took a walk without a coat. was a little chilly but it felt great to not wear a jacket

marcos, Tuesday, 11 March 2014 19:57 (eight years ago) link

these days aside, march is brutal. it's just a tease. real spring here doesn't come until late april
