The spring equinox arrived more than two weeks ago. Yet, it is snowing. On April 4.
And either in genuine, joy-filled awe, or in some kind of horrified captivation, enraptured Bostonians near and far caught the odd storm on camera during Monday morning’s commute. And then posted said footage to Twitter.

Are we being punished for a mild winter? Is this some kind of backward good luck charm for the Boston Red Sox, whose 2016 season opens today? Or is this simply a classic example of New England weather doing what it feels like doing regardless of, you know, seasons?

To the credit of Mother Nature, this is not at all the first time there has been snow in April. But after a winter that paled in comparison to Snowmageddon 2015, many of us thought we were in the clear. We thought wrong.

Take the snow mats back out. Un-store the salt and the shovels. It’s not over yet.
