(Newser) – Spring has officially sprung, but just try prying the scarf and mittens from much of the country that is still freezing. Areas of Maine are expected to receive up to 14 inches of snow today, while the residents of Lunenburg, Mass., are already enjoying 15 inches and subzero temperatures, says CNN. "Definitely over winter," grumbles one resident. Even the South is suffering, with freeze warnings from central Alabama to North Carolina. For those looking for a distraction from shoveling, the Washington Post runs down the meaning of the Spring Equinox—the day in which we see equal parts daylight and nighttime.

In New England winter ends when it wants to. My mom (from Northern New Hampshire) loved to tell the story of the year they had snow flurries on the 4th of July.

Now that we have an extra hour of sunlight every day things will start to get warmer. It happens every year.
