An Agonizing Crawl into Spring

April 16th, 2011 · 78 Comments

Imagine, if you will, rainy, cold days and nights accentuated by flurries of snow and sleet, a bitter wind cutting through to the bone. Then imagine that you wake up the next day to bright sunshine pouring through your window, birds singing outside in trees with tender green leaves, overlooking the first flowers peaking through the soil, all celebrating the arrival of a wonderous Spring.

When I think of the arrival of Spring, these are the images and thoughts that come to mind. Warm breezes, birds chirping and he sweet of new flowers assaulting the nostrils.

Unfortunately, Spring in Copenhagen is more like a battle between Evil and Good, Good being spring and Evil representing  the other 90% of the year. Evil always has the upper hand and finally gives in to Good (spring) after much tormenting and teasing. Spring doesn’t just come all at once, it peeks its weary head through dark clouds and lights up the day in very brief flashes of a promised warmth, never fully establishing its presence. Birds are in the trees chirping with rousing enthusiasm until the clouds once again give up their store and drop a steady rain down to the earth. The flowers cautiously open to reveal a promise of bright colors inside, only to close again when the cold wind again starts to blow and the freezing night arrives.

This goes on for weeks and weeks until Spring finally has its day, which is about all that it can afford since summer is soon on its heels with its few weeks of true sunshine and warmth. It never really has a fair chance.

This is an unusual occurrence in the land of Democratic Socialism which Denmark prides itself as being a home of, but then again I think that Mother Nature is more of a pacifist herself. Spring is only allowed here because it is just a part of the natural progression towards Winter, a small part at that. Denmark has to have the dead leaves for the snow to stick to and make a mess in the winter, the leaves need the autumn twilight to die, the summer makes the leaves grow and the spring is there just to get the whole process towards inevitable doom going in the first place. No need to waste time in all this – just give the minmal amount of time so that winter can get going full force again.

Danish weather in a nutshell.
