It ain’t spring yet!

Astronomical springs started today (3/20) at 12:57 PM.  It’s the vernal equinox, what your calendar calls the first day of spring.  (It has something to do with the way the earth tilts.  I don’t get that.  The earth tends to tilt for me on a regular basis, constantly throwing me off kilter.)

Tomorrow is the first full day of spring, yet another milestone to consider.

March 1 was the first day of meteorological (or climatological) spring.  Only meteorologists (or climatologists) care about that one.

Confused?  Don’t be.  Our bodies know when spring starts and it ain’t here yet, no matter what the meteorologists (or climatologists) or calendars say.  My benchmark is the bike path.  When it’s clear enough to ride on, spring is here.

This is what it looks like today, courtesy of the ultra-lame camera in my lame phone :

It ain’t spring yet.
