Thursday, the start of spring, is the Vernal Equinox:
Days and nights are approximately equal.
America’s weather will be far from balanced, however, per NOAA:
More than half the nation may shiver in below-average temperatures next week.
Weather that is far from spring-like:
Much-needed precipitation is forecast for northern California.
But not the drought-hit central and southern parts of the state.
A lot of key American crops will remain impacted.
Expect higher prices at grocery stores, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Spawning salmon trying to travel dry waterways are affected, too.
Look, winter’s already been too long for many.
Social media is full of “fed up”:
For many, Thursday will be spring on a calendar, only.
In real life, all bundled up, you may be thinking one thing.
Spring has a reputation problem.
Spring is broken.
“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
― Mark Twain
