Air temperature 49 F, wind NNE about 3 mph, overcast. Streets and roof starting to dry off, no mockingbirds on the newspaper walk. Flood watches continue, but no apparent fatalities from the canoe race.

Not even May yet, but the green buds all were swelling.

Air temperature 53 F, wind south about 9 mph, damp world. May try for a bike ride if the roads dry off.

Really, people, competitive assholery is not an Olympic sport.

Air temperature 54 F, wind south about 10 mph, raining. Saw neighbor loading kayaks into/onto truck early, so we presume the local canoe race looms in their future. Race finish line moved upstream due to tide schedule -- can't fit under the downtown bridges . . .

Ice out of the cemetery pond and off the river to above head-of-tide. Even vernal pools on my bike route open.

Road dried off, temperature got above 60 F, extended my ride distance again. About 10 miles, no roadkill.

There's a white pine on my longer walk route with a fair-sized nest visible. Have seen either a Cooper's or sharp-shinned hawk flying to the tree, but the nest-call ki-ki-ki doesn't match either species in audio on the internet. Closer to the recordings for a merlin, which is unlikely.

Air temperature 50 F, wind south about 10 mph, overcast with fog. Flood watch for most of the state, with rain forecast and melting snow. May get a break long enough for a bike ride. Or not.

Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing . . .

As is so often the case, people see what they want to see.

Air temperature 29 F early, warmed up to 35 now. Near calm with a light south breeze, high thin clouds. We still have some snow tucked in next to South Neighbor's house under the rhododendron and cedar.

Turkey vulture circling low, off to the side of my bike route. I didn't try to find whatever it was after, that being a section of dead-end residential roads.

Air temperature 56 F, wind still gusting to over 20 mph, but sunny. Got out on another acclimation ride, over 6 miles this time. Did not die.

I believe Mr. Macron's timeline is . . . optimistic.

Air temperature 41 F, wind NNW about 10 mph, clear sky. Three mockingbird serenades on my morning newspaper walk. Also goldfinch that seemed to be in full spring feathers.

Air temperature 41 F, wind NW gusting over 20 mph, mostly cloudy. Minor flooding predicted from melting snow and yesterday's rain. I would like the dragons to win.

Everything has to fit your worldview.

It looks like anything less than total gloom and doom is not acceptable to some people.
