Spring will come eventually. I'm pretty sure anyway. So here are some premature tips for you gardeners. According to the The Old Farmer's Almanac 2008, page 272, traditional planting times go like this:
Corn "when elm leaves are the size of a squirrel's ear"
Perennials "when maple leaves begin to unfurl"
Pansies "after the aspen and chokecherry trees leaf out"

There it is, old-fashioned, vague folk knowledge to help you garden.
So good luck with that!
