Yesterday’s Phenology: Another sunny day. High of 86, (3 above average.) Not a lot of wind, but a lot of sun, making for a thirsty day. A pretty quiet day, but for the occasional explosions.

Yesterday’s Phenology: Another mostly gray day, mostly below 45 degrees, mostly a little breezy. Probably a pretty typical March sort of day, though I’m kind of forgetting what a typical March day is like. In this case, gray and cool and dry.

Song of the day: The Cranberries, Dream

Yesterday’s Phenology: Another cheery gray day, temps hovering in the mid 20s, a little breeze making it feel a little chillier than that. I was thinking about the birds that I’ve seen so far this year. The bird list has kind of come to a standstill. Geese and crows. Crows and geese. Crows and crows. Sparrows at the bird feeder. Deep, we are deep down in the January doldrums.

Song of the day: John Lee Hooker, Blues Before Sunrise

Yesterday’s Phenology: After a number of days of gray overcast cloudy days, temps hovering about freezing, it finally decided to snow a bit. We got perhaps a couple of inches. So things look brighter and cheerier, a bit, I guess. Still, cloudy all day, and the temp peaked at about 31.

Song of the day: Johnny Lee Hooker, This Land is Nobody’s Land

Yesterday’s Phenology: Spring returns to the Twin Cities. Temp in the mid to upper 30s, and the sun shines down warmly on the inhabitants of our fair cities. Took a few walks today, and noted only crows, crowing around, tree to tree, mocking the poor flightless humans below.

Song of the day: Jethro Tull, Wond’Ring Aloud
