However, I have to confess, I'm a little confused.
You see, while the aforementioned meteorologists categorise today as the first day of spring, according to the astronomical definition spring doesn't actually arrive until the Venal Equinox which, this year, falls on March 20th.
So, if winter ended yesterday and spring doesn't really arrive until the 20th, what are the next nineteen days supposed to be?
SPRINTER, perhaps... Depending, I guess, on how fast they go by...
