That "date" can vary quite a bit from year to year. Easter is the first Sunday following the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox.With the highs in the lower 30's and lows around 10-20 it feels like it will never get warm enough to paint. I had hoped to be in the water in a couple-three weeks. Most folks around here (MI) like to be in by good friday. I dont see that happening this year.
