1.3 - 14.4
From the beginning of March to mid-April, the air is full of light, but nights remain dark and cold. The first bright days of snow crust spring drives people to the frozen river and forests for outdoor activities: skiing, walking, fishing, and even golf. If the dark season was a time for getting together indoors, this is a time for meeting up outdoors; and in great numbers. It might be a shock for a newcomer to see all these people: one might begin to wonder where they all were during the winter.
