I sort of thought leap year was part of it. I was surprised it was so early.

20 inches of snow predicted over the next week. Which is good since we are 40 inches down on the year.

Unless I read it wrong Leap Year and DST are a huge part of it.

Yeesh. Where are you? Don't forget roughly 1" of rain = 10" of snow. We had a LOT of rain this winter. I am thankful it was not snow.

I'm putting more weight on leap year since it's a whole day and fairly rare. DST is always there.

That said, the equinox doesn't have any effect on anything other than perhaps some pagan celebrations.

Spring will continue to come earlier if patterns
continue to trend in the same direction. That is
concerning, while not alarming.

THIS is alarming...
