It's a tale of two Marches. As I write this, it is 83 degrees and the sun is shining. Flowers are blooming or have bloomed. Folks are mowing the yard. Yes, it's the first day of spring. But it feels like it started a month ago. The normal high for today is in the high 50s. Well, the high 50s would have been a blessing if this were March 20th, 1996.
