    Spring Has Arrived

    Well it's the first day of Spring today. Enjoy your damn snow.

    For those of you that are still slaves to the astronomical seasons, the responsibility for this snow lies at your feet.

    If you all would just accept the meteorological calendar, none of this storm nonsense ever would have happened.

    Spring has Sprung! Hey, Wait a Second...

    Ummm, you are a weather guy right? Spring starts on the 20th at sunrise.

    Re: Spring Has Arrived

    Well, heck, since it's open to interpretation, I declare the first day of Spring to be tomorrow! I like the idea of the first Saturday of March being the first day of Spring, so I'm going with it! The Clonefanium Calendar is soon to follow.

    Seriously though, for me, I like the Astronomical version better. I like incorporating the tilt of the earth in relation to the sun, plus, fall doesn't come as early then, So my birthday is still in Summer!

    Warmest 25% of the year is summer. Coldest 25% is winter. Done.

    You guys and your crazy zodiac witchcraft.

    Re: Spring Has Arrived

    Am I the only one who agrees? It makes much, much more sense to classify by temperature.
