groundhogAnother 12 days until Spring if you believe in Groundhogs. If you don’t, it’ll be another 16 days until the Vernal Equinox, the first day of spring.

Either way, considering the 73 days of winter we’ve already survived since the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2013 , it seems to be safe to say that the worst is over.

Even better, for April and May the Farmers’ Almanac predicts warm and dry weather and a hot (and rainy) summer and fall’s supposed to be nice, too.
