first day of spring

All posts tagged first day of spring

Hey, some good news for you snow haters. In just a couple of hours you can look out the window and say Goodbye to Winter and Hello to Spring. The bad news is that the snow contest lives on for the main fact that we will probably be getting more snow 😉 But wait, there is more good news. The days start getting longer than the nights do now, Wooo Hooo 😉

Syracuse only has less than an 8 inch lead on Buffalo right now so even if we could it would be way too early to call it when it’s this close. Buffalo could slide past Syracuse with one decent storm and I don’t think we are done with the storms just yet. There was one the other day that hit the South but it didn’t come North enough to effect us.

It is the first day of Spring though so we know what is right around the corner. Most likely a long HOT summer and me whining about how hot it is every minute of the day. I’m joking, kind of 😉 I’m looking forward to hanging by the pool sipping on a Margarita errr, I mean soda pop and the smell of fresh cut grass…

Have an Awesome Day Everyone!

First off you might see some articles today saying the Golden Snowball contest is over.  The contest doesn’t end the first day of Spring and fortunately/unfortunately depending how you look at it goes on til the end of April when the chances of no more snow falling are pretty good. 

Happy Spring all!!!  Normally I would say something like Hello Spring – Goodbye Winter but it just doesn’t seem right this year does it?  It’s hard to say goodbye to something that never showed up in the first place.  The sound of Spring does sound pretty good though and it will be interesting to see if we can stay on whatever pattern we are on right now.  The one that’s brought us unbelievable weather throughout the winter months and has set records all over the charts.  Not the good kind of records that those who snomobiler’s, ice fishermen or ski resorts like but the kind that those who hate winter love.

Rochester continues to lead the contest but I’m not throwing in the shovel just yet.  It is looking pretty good for The Rock but with a winter like we just had, a snow season that I can not remember ever having who knows what spring wil throw at us.  Right now it’s some nice sunny 70 – 80 degree days which is hard for even us snow lovers not to appreciate.  Stay Tuned!

Here are a couple of good articles.  One about this being the earliest vernal equinox, spring since 1896  and another from Syracuse .com’s John Mariani about the winter that never was.

Have a Great week all and enjoy the sunshine :)
