california still feels like winter (california winter that is..)
ofcourse marinas are open all year round and no ice n snow etc.
had lots of rain already this year, i believe they announced the drought is actually over.

We don't have a lottery in Alaska ( not enough people ) but we do bet on when the ice will go out on the Nenana.

closest we can get to a lottery. and the best indication of spring.
