I want Spring as much as the next guy but damn wouldn't that set a president.  So we could start knocking off weather men and women who routinely, with every instrument and data known to man, still can't predict the weather 3 days out correctly?

I think some of the frustration comes from the fact that nearly 99% of the time, good ole' Phil predicts 6 more weeks of Winter, and this year he changed that tune, and surprised everyone. And not Mother Nature is doing her own thing, to hell with Phil and his predictions. LOL

The other factor, we were spoiled last year, with the warm Winter, and very little snow fall.

Of course, anyone with half a brain knows weather is unpredictable for most of the time. :)
