Today is the vernal equinox in the northern hemisphere and therefore, the official "first day of Spring." But Spring in Canada is kind of a trickster kitsune fox -- it won't truly arrive here for at least 4 to 6 weeks more. Oh sure, the days are getting longer, the weather is warmer and sunnier sometimes and the snow may melt on occasion. But more snowstorms, cold snaps and snow are still entirely possible, indeed probable. Nobody is putting away their shovels, snowblowers or winter gear just yet.
