Yesterday’s Phenology: A cold and overcast spring day. Largely in the 30s. Not good baseball weather.

Song of the day: John Fogarty, Centerfield

Yesterday’s Phenology: A nice spring day. Sunny, mostly, and a bit breezy. Not warm enough to kill all the snow, though. First robin of spring? Check.

Song of the day: The Mamas and the Papas, Monday Monday

Yesterday’s Phenology: A march sort of day. Sunny, and a bit warmer, but breezy, so a bit colder. That sort of day. Went for a long walk with Flynn in the afternoon, and was followed by a murder of crows, perhaps about a hundred or so, a boisterous lot. We pretended to ignore them, as they were dying for our attention. I may also have seen a hawk, also ignoring the crows as best he could. Though the last few days have been not so cold, there are still scraps of snow here and there to remind us of winter.

Song of the day: Dean Glenn Hubbard, Every Breath You Take

Yesterday’s Phenology: ┬áSunny and cold(er). What was it, maybe 17 today? Yes, 17. Again, wildlife is staying under cover. A brisk little wind made that a good idea.

Song of the Day: Charles Mingus, Better Git it in Your Soul

Yesterday’s Phenology: A suitably morose day, gray and depressing, with a heavy mist stinking of discouragement, disappointment, and dismay. The temp peaked at about 37 today, but there was a cold chill in the air as darkness descends.

Song of the Day: Bob Dylan, A Hard Rain’s a Gonna Fall

Yesterday’s Phenology: the start of the January thaw? When I woke up in was about 5 degrees, but when we left the house about 1ish it was up to about 30┬ádegrees, and we ended up sneaking up above freezing, up to 33 degrees. Needless to say, there was widespread enthusiasm for this. Bermuda shorts were out and the young folk were tossing frisbees in the parks. A nice sunny day, reminding us of what things can be like on occasion.

The Art Institute was crowded today, it being the last day for the Martin Luther show. I missed it.

Song of the Day: Orff, O Fortuna
