Today is the first official day of spring, if you measure the arrival of spring by the vernal equinox.  My calendar does.  Many scientists do.  But I think there are better ways.

If we're still wearing driving gloves in the moring, it's not spring.

If the grill is in storage, it's not spring.

If the Tigers haven't played their home opener, it's not spring.

I'm glad our calendars are so optimistic, but they've jumped the gun.  I can't wait for spring to REALLY arrive.  I'm counting the days until we can replace our driving gloves with baseball gloves.

What's your favorite sign of spring?
