March madness

Depending on the location, winter may be a problem for the sailing enthusiasts. There are soft water solutions (frostbiting) and hard water solutions (iceboating), and there are even open fields with snow solutions (kitewing skiing). But winter is cold, which is enough for many to curtail their sailing drive. However, March is not just the time for college basketball…

* Groundhog Day: Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on February 2nd, so winter would last another six weeks (March 16th)

* Sock Burning: This Chesapeake Country ritual (maybe elsewhere too?) occurs at the vernal equinox (March 20th) to celebrate the end of winter.

* Daylight Savings Time: When the above don’t work, nothing replaces additional light at the end of the day. For the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, daylight time begins on March 8.
