New Hampshire Time

In the paper this Sunday, Spot and Buddy passed the time with snowballs. This jarred me a bit since there's grass on the ground and rain water in the basement.

There's a reason for this. The strip was originally intended for March 27, which, in New Hampshire Time, is still winter, despite the Vernal Equinox.

But I wasn't alone in heaping snow on the comics section. If you're a cartoonist who lives in Maine, the only alternative to throwing snowballs was to grab a shovel.
