You may think that Spring begins at the equinox. Or that it's signaled by the plum trees blooming. Or the first song birds arriving from the south.
Nope. Today is the first day of Spring. I know that because today is the day I turned off my heat.
I have baseboard electric heat here, and on the first day of Winter (by definition) I turn my heat on. It stays on all winter. And on the first day of Spring I turn it off again, and it stays off until the next winter.
It's interesting that this weekend was hot enough that I changed out for summer sheets and blankets, turned off the heat, opened all the windows, and turned on the fans, and still had trouble sleeping at night due to the heat. And yet last night the heat was back on and I had a blanket back on the bed. I think it will be another few weeks before the temperature is reliably warm.

Summer was short-lived, because two days later the high was 35 and I turned on the heat again.
