5C and a mix of sun and clouds! Morning was on the cold side at -7C once again but at least it's within 2C of the average.

More cloud cover in Vancouver on Monday, and a bit of wind so it felt chillier. No rain, though. The high at Vancouver Harbour was 10 C, the low was 1 C.

After a high of 8.5C yesterday, heading up to 10C today before winter makes a short comeback tonight and tomorrow. Windchills of -25C by tomorrow morning, then back to 5C by Thursday, and 10C by the weekend. Gotta love March

Lots of snow and freezing rain from last night's storm but foggy today. It genuinely is like a mild blanket. Sucks the chill out of the air, melts the snow. Feels like spring.

Just wrapped up a long weekend, no trouble sleeping, but was absolutely EXHAUSTED at work today. Coworker happened to mention the same, another overheard, suddenly it's a group conversation about how everyone is wrecked and not for the normal Paddy's Day reasons.

Suggestions it's Vitamin D, etc. Then someone says, "It's just this winter has been really long." and everyone agreed.

And ANOTHER storm, on the cusp of warning criteria, for tomorrow.

I'm actually pissed, for all the ****ing good being pissed about the weather will ever do for me.

I have been feeling the same way lately. Maybe it is some combination of daylight savings and the longer days. I feel like it's easier to sleep longer in the fall as the days get shorter, and harder during the adjustment in the spring. This is the time of year when the daylight increases the fastest.

Here in Vancouver we've also had an abysmal winter. We're on month 6 now without much sunshine. If you're going to suffer from some kind of chronic lack-of-sunshine related ailment, this is the time of year when dreary weather will hit you the hardest.

Yeah well it's way harder on you than any other aspect of climate.

Humans didn't evolve to live in northern latitudes nor spending so much times in low sunshine environments.

White skin is not a natural trait in humans. It's a fairly recent mutation, and the adaptation to environments along the coast is not what humans were made for.

We've evolved to have an extreme tolerance for hot and cold, thanks to various ice ages.

However sunlight was originally humanity's time piece.

Friggin' blizzard warning today for the areas of the Maritimes surrounding the Gulf of St Lawrence. Not much snow (10-15 cm), but lots of wind to blow it around........

I see we're getting 10-15 cm of snow overnight, and then plunging into a deep-freeze (high temp on Friday and Sunday of -7).

We know only misery on this island.

But it makes you strong, no? To better cope with more misery, right? Right?

It's supposed to be the coldest stretch of the year. In late March. I just give up. Joy is just something I don't get to experience anymore out of doors.

I've often felt that springtime begins as a wave in California sometime in early February, spreading northward and eastward, reaching the Maritimes sometime in early May, and Newfoundland by the first week of June.

The spring is the cruelest season here in eastern Canada. People elsewhere in the continent are frolicking amongst the daffodils and wildflowers by April, while around here de rigure clothing remains the parka.

I find the masters golf tournament always a sigil of this dichotomy. On TV, you watch the best golfers in the world playing on this sumptuously green course (Augusta National), with the magnolias in full bloom and birds chirping in the background. Meanwhile here in the Maritimes, you look out the window and see a meter of snow still on the ground and flurries in the air.........

Yeah we don't have it that bad here but the Masters are definitely sobering to watch. Full on summer mode and really it's not too far from here. However their actual summer is pretty unbearable which is one reason the Masters is held so early.
