I'm old school when it comes to the days that seasons start and end. I don't hold with any of this "winter is December, January and February" nonsense: for me, winter is December 21st to is March 20th.
OK, so I concede that things are probably different south of the equator, and I can see where people who go with the shortest day/equinox pairing are coming from, but if you're going to be arbitrary about dates, you have to be properly arbitrary about them. Mid-summer's day is the first day of summer, not some day in the middle of it: that's the whole joyous point of it.
According to the TV weather forecasters, it's been spring for 10 days. When I got up this morning, however, it was snowing. It's still snowing.
