Dying Dragon of the last winter has a long Tail.
I'm a bit worried how that will affect my gardening season. Last one was lousy...

In practical terms,

the trick is, at the beginning of a global climate change, to move to a region with really bad weather.
When I came to British Columbia two decades ago, it really rained all the time, in a very bad way.
Yes, you can only grow temperate rain forest with, well, rain...

But now, well, all the Mountain Pines are going the way of the Dodo...

But, there is areas with great gardening, and if there is a small stream for hydro-power, you are off Scott-free!

One advice: Do not buy Collateralized Mortgage Obligation for the low lying Fraser Delta, like Real Estate in Richmond, BC.
Call it a hunch...

-10.4 C at 5 cm this morning, and white all around.

From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow."


Hoped for an early spring,



I hoped too, you know, an early Spring for you and me.

Ivica, I wish I was yet less clumsy with my iPhone, but already all is in bloom here in Vancouver, BC.

My "Hydro" bill (electricity here is called "Hydro", because it is mostly from water power, "Hydro Dams") clearly states, other than reminding me to be careful and save electricity, that this winter was 1º C warmer than last.

Subjectively, I actually never connected my natural gas space heater at all.
A couple of days, I turned on all the flames on the stove for a while, to take the edge off.
But winters in the North-West of the americas have become much milder and drier in the last twenty years I've lived here.
Wetter and snowier at altitude at the same time too. Alas, all the coastal ice fields retreated much at the annual average.
I know so, because I work in film, and we find it increasingly difficult to budget for a "winter scene" in summer on real ice/snow. You have to drive much further to be sure.

The general feeling seems to be happiness about that, because now you see people keeping palm trees and bananas in their front yards, which did not survive winter in the past.
We are still listed as a "temperate rain forest" zone... (BTW, that means moss and cypresses, usually)

Winter here was an average one - but also never-ending - snowfall again, yesterday.
Maybe you should check for , ugh :-))
As I'm aging I become more southern type, I need warmth.
Wider Caspian-Aral area took "our" heat, I wonder is that a precursor of a major heat wave in continental part of Euro-Asia, again.

In the upper US, we had a colder March than December-February. Spring didn't spring for us till this week. No one could remember the last time we saw it snow in late March.

Raining now ... and - of course - a serious flooding around.

Equinox is back, melt season is on its end.

"Pale Blue Dot" by Carl Sagan:

“Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
