My Speed Gibson reality calendar is over 5 years old now, with this year's late arrival of spring setting a new record: April 27th. This is the first day after 7 days above 40, marking the end of this long winter. Actually, given the late start of this winter (Dec 20), it still wound up being "only" 18 weeks long.
It comes just in time for the annual Tax Rally at the St. Paul Capitol tomorrow. I expect the last of my snow will be gone by the time I return.
