This is what the first day of spring looks like in Ottawa:
Someone on IRC commented “You can tell it’s spring because there’s snow and fog,” but no, that’s just snow. 10-15cm in the last two days, in fact, after a couple weeks of 5-10 C temperatures.
(I’m reading Martin Gardner’s Did Adam and Eve have navels? right now, and there’s a good section in there about egg-standing and pseudoscience in the news.)
