Just moving this thread to the top of the pile...where it belongs!


Enjoying the nice Spring rain here again today around +8 this morning, just a very small bank of snirt (snow/dirt) left in front yard.

Any plowguys here on seasonal contracts must be laughing all the way to the bank this winter, less so for guys getting paid per a push.

Personally I'm enjoying this season so I'm not ready for Spring yet but I am loving the days getting longer, sunset is now past 5:30pm. In less then 5 weeks, it will be past 7pm again biggrin.gif

At the rate things are going, it wouldn't surprise me if Daylight saving time is abolished within the next decade.

Actually jealous. If the cold isn't going to bring decent snow, then it can get lost. Sick of this winter now here, longing for warmth, and 8C sounds lovely.

It wouldn't be bad if it stayed warmer to thaw out the ground cause at the moment the top couple of inches just thaws out then we get rain on top with no where to drain into the frozen ground below so a boggy mess on trails etc, then the temps swing the other way for a couple of days to at least freeze the bog up again, we have a high of minus 8 tomorrow. Rollercoaster winter for sure but a severe lack of snow the last few weeks.

Any further rain/warm ups over the next 10 days can do it's worst as not like we have to worry about losing snow. Then just hope we at least see a bit of significant snow later February through March? Else winter enthusiasts who got new gear for Christmas will be waiting until next winter to try it out properly!

I sincerely hope not. I love DST and I don't want anyone taking away my evening daylight. We should abolish Standard Time instead and stay on Daylight Saving Time all year as far as I'm concerned.

I'd gladly take a 9am sunrise in December over a 4:30pm sunset any day.

That would never happen though. Having no daylight for school time and the morning commute is a safety issue.

Interesting how it actually plays out.

Apparently they did try year round daylight saving in the early 70s, but stopped it due to these very concerns.

This being said, high latitude locations such as Oslo and Saint Petersburg, Russia experience very late winter sunrises on standard time - the sun rises at 10 am in Saint Petersburg on December 21.

They can't help it though, they are too far north. That being said I'd be ok with getting rid of DST entirely.

I'd personally miss the 9 pm sunsets in June, but I think people are increasingly coming around to your point of view.

I would miss them too and I hope it never comes down to that. Alberta recently tried getting rid of DST last fall and it was shot down so that gives me hope that we can hold onto it for the foreseeable future.

I guarantee you that if we got rid of DST people would be complaining of darkness so early in the summer and useless daylight at 4:30am. It would be even worse along the east coast with places like NYC getting 4am sunrises and 7:30pm sunsets in June!

In the meantime, two more weeks now until DST starts and we can be enjoying sunsets not seen here since September.

March is coming in like a lion, especially after a week of above freezing temperatures. This could easily be the biggest storm in years for the Niagara region.

Well, the past two weeks have been downright terrible, with winter like conditions dragging on. Hard to believe we're well into spring now. Warmer conditions are possible this weekend, but still cooler than what we saw near the end of February.

This is the 5 day moving average for the end of the GEFS run, but it looks similar all the way through...just rubbish. In some ways, if there is a pattern change mid-April and we see above normal temps from there after, I won't make taking the hit now. Above normals later in spring, equates to summer like temps.

However, we need precip up this way, been a very dry spell here since early February.

No precip in a long time to speak of really. Not good for grass and gardens if this keeps up. My tulips are popping out of the ground but I haven't seen a robin yet.... hmmm

lol, yup, nice muddy paw prints on my white tile floor. I love the strength of the sunshine when you are out of the wind; yesterday was nice but no birds around my house. That puts me in the spring mood that winter is on it's way out. It has been for a long time, thank god. Now watch me jinkx this spring for saying that .
