This year's Vernal Equinox falls on the heels of a snowstorm in the Northeast, making it almost laughable to mark the day as spring's first, which it is astronomically-speaking. Astronomers use equinoxes and solstices to mark seasonal shifts. These dates can change from year to year, which is why you may remember last year's spring began on March 19.
