First Day of Spring?

So Spring has sprung here in the Northern Hemisphere.
.
The march of the Sun has crossed the equinox (actually - of course - the Sun hasn't moved, but the Earth's Axis in relationship to it's orbit has changed the relative position of the Sun - but why state the obvious).
.
Another thing that is obvious - Springs means pretty much nothing given that it is going to snow here again next week.
.
bleh.
.
This is a picture of Eddie wearing the lovely hand-made slippers from Bosnia.
.
They were very comfortable.
.
And hand-made.  But not really hand-made well.
.
They were about 7 dollars for the slippers - and I don't think Ed got a dollar a wear out of them.
.
Svetlana the Bosnian didn't do a great job of sewing them.
.
But I posted this because it is nearly the universal reaction when hearing the first week of Spring will bring snow.
