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

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.

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

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 (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

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

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:

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

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

but having a 54 degree day in this winter feels like a miracle. in a winter as harsh, continuous, and cold as this one i seriously have trouble comprehending that it will get warm again someday. i forget what trees look like with leaves.

xpost - as if that's a bad thing! ;)

Until now, March has been ridiculous here in the Netherlands. From Sunday to today, the sky's been clear and afternoon temperatures have been close to or at 20°C (between 60 and 70°F) - I've been doing my running excercises in shorts and shirts for the last two weeks!

this evening sunlight is bonkers

I've been listening obsessively to Stravinsky's 'Persephone' (the later, sly, easy-going cousin to the Rite Of Spring) the last couple of weeks, but only just realized how aptly hell yes it's march it is. Go Persephone! Prrrriiiinnnnntemmmmps!

Myth or it didn't happen (Jon Lewis), Tuesday, 18 March 2014 19:57 (eight years ago) link

we slowly invented brains (La Lechera), Wednesday, 2 April 2014 13:24 (eight years ago) link

April 1st - first time I wore sneakers this year. Renaissant!

central texas is wildflower central right now! last sunday was fuck off beautiful. now we need it to rain for three weeks straight.

the best thing about more light in the evening is that sometimes my cat waits in the window for me to come home, and now i can see him

tbh he's waiting for me to feed him, but i like to imagine that he wants to see me too

mookieproof, Wednesday, 2 April 2014 23:49 (eight years ago) link

I didn't have to wear a coat today.
