March 1, Aomori: The ice has melted from most of the lake. Some trees are budding, barely. The highs are creeping up. We may break 10 over the next few days. Lows still getting down to -3 or -4. Today is partly sunny, not much wind, high of 8.

Mar 6, Northern Rivers: Showers nearly every day the first week - hot and humid - a kind of natural greenhouse. Planted 20 natives as first step in reforestation program but see apart from a storm tomorrow, another heatwave is coming - heading to 36 - with the humidity here that's hot

March 8, Aomori: Had flurries today but nothing stuck. It was a pleasant morning with sun, no wind, and 1-2C. Mostly sunny today. Wind kicked up in the afternoon as it normally does, high of 4. It's supposed to get over 10 tomorrow. Clearly moving in to spring temperatures with more frequent days over 6C. Snow piles melting quickly. Roads are dry and clear. We had our first day over 10C a couple days ago. I think it hit 11.

March 12, Aomori: Sunday (10th) was beautiful with high of 13, though windy. Last night rain turned to snow and there were nearly 3" on the ground this morning. It is melting quickly with the high today to hit 10. Lows are still hitting -1 to -3 or so every night, with highs still averaging about 8.

March 15, NR: Planted another 150 trees over last three day All along creek bank. Hard work digging each hole with a crowbar - though the soil is pretty soft. Incredibly, i didn't find a single stone - that's a big contrast to Taidong where the land was full of rocks. Waited until he heatwave finished and a stretch of rainy days was forecast and it has come - good soaking rain - which had me feeling my timing was great until someone said 'Why are you planting now? They'll all be killed by frost in a few months.' Need to work out way to try and mitigate that. I hadn't imagined they would have frost here but apparently the winters nights are regularly in the minus as it's in a valley. Main problem now is keeping the grass under control. Saw wedge-tailed eagle today. Wallabies starting to come up around the house - the previous owner had three dogs so surprised how quick they decided it was safe to come around here.

March 19, Aomori: First day that really feels like spring is coming. The cherry tree outside the classroom is clearly budding. The high today is forecast at 15. Sunny morning, low wind, though wind has been kicking up every afternoon. Lows still hitting below 0 most nights. Snow is nearly gone.

March 20, Aomori: It's a beautiful morning and supposed to hit a whopping 18 today which, if true, will be the warmest it's been yet this year. Of course, later in the week the highs are forecast to only hit 6, but we're getting there. Bugs are out but not in bothersome numbers at all. Cute little things, bugs. I'd forgotten what they look like.
