Spring is in the Air?

So one day as I was starting to get a little bored with winter, I thought to myself, wouldn't it be great if someone would develop a computer program or cell phone app by which you could install and run the season of your choice?

Imagine if that were possible? You're into summers and your neighbour is into winters. You're sitting on your deck sipping iced tea in a balmy 30 degrees celsius, while your neighbour is getting ready to go cross country skiing in his -10 degree day. Everyone could simply choose the season they liked best, install it as an app into their phone, and voila. Wouldn't that be a great idea?

I guess there are some serious logistical problems to overcome first with such a concept. Still, once upon a time men were certain that the world was flat and that the horseless carriage concept was an impossibility too. Likewise, it really wasn't that many years ago that air travel was also unheard of either, so you never know what the future holds.

Having said that, I'm ready for Spring. How about you? So I'm going to try a little experiment and install a season change. Let's see how it works:

INSTALLING SPRING...

Installation delayed ... please wait. Installation failed. Please try again. 404 error: Season not found. Season "Spring" cannot be located. The season you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. Please try again.
