Early Spring?

Posted By on Fri, Feb 2, 2007 at 10:19 AM

With all the TV lights hanging around, you'd think Punxsutawney Phil would see his shadow every year, but as CNN is reporting, the furry little critter didn't this morning and now we're in for an early spring.

At least the part of the country that has a real winter, and, no, one day of snow doesn't count.

One rite of spring that will be arriving early, for most of the rest of the country, is Daylight Saving Time, which begins on the second Sunday in March this year, thanks to the Energy Policy Act of 2005. (Arizona's still not going along for the ride.) We'll apparently be dragging Canada along with us, so as not to confuse business people and tourists along that border. No word about Mexico.

Meanwhile, enjoy the "early" spring-like weather being forecast for this weekend in Southern Arizona.
