Lots of folks I meet up with seem to be surprised by snow in March.  I blame that graphic from 4th grade science books that shows the four seasons with clear transitions between each in a quartered pie chart.  (Here‘s a better one.)

In a positive light, I guess it shows that there are a lot of optimists out there.  In case you’re curious, the average “last March snow” for the last ten years in this area happens on March 18th with a standard deviation of 11 days.  So, if it snows in April, then I’d say that it would be fair to be at least 70% surprised.
