Airline plans canceled? Read this about getting refunds - SFGate
Strategy: In the current environment, don't rush to cancel your spring break flights now. Wait until the very last minute to see whether the airline will cancel your flight before you do. That way you can ask for a refund. If you cancel before the airline does, you'll only get a flight credit.

Disembodied States : Open Space
You may have heard that SFMOMA is reopening. In anticipation of this fast-approaching reality, Open Space has commissioned “Disembodied States” — a special nine-part Collection Rotation from artists, writers, and thinkers outside of California — as a celebration of the breadth and reach of the collection, and a nod to these last moments in which the museum exists as a hypothetical space, a space that can best be accessed through the virtual, and the imagination. We see these pieces as stand-alone works-of-art, rendered in a variety of media, and jostling in a larger, strange conversation with the collection. Welcome — please come in.

Meteorological Versus Astronomical Seasons | News | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)
You may have noticed that meteorologists and climatologists define seasons differently from “regular” or astronomical spring, summer, fall, and winter. So, why do meteorological and astronomical seasons begin and end at different times? In short, it’s because the astronomical seasons are based on the position of Earth in relation to the sun, whereas the meteorological seasons are based on the annual temperature cycle.
