It’s weird; once it hits mid-March, there’s part of my head that’s just “Well, it’s far too late for that kind of weather.” Snow? This late in the year? That’s just wrong, for some reason; snow belongs to December and January, and maybe February if the weather envelope gets a little pushed. Otherwise, I just get suspicious and concerned.
