Is it too early to start thinking about Spring

Is it too early to start thinking about Spring

Despite the recent severe cold which obliterated most of my tropicals (palms, bananas, papayas, gingers, avocado and exotics), I find myself somewhat optimistic about an early Spring. The low chill fruits (blueberries, peaches, plum) are already flowering, the figs are showing some breba fruits, and my citrus, lychee and macadamia are in bud. Could it be that Staten Island Chuck is smarter than Punxsutawney Phil? Is Spring truly on the way? How're your gardens looking? Any other hopeful signs?
