If spring hasn't sprung, why not tailor it slightly?

That's what one Vermont television station has done two years in a row, posting winter temperatures in Kelvin, a unit of measurement which starts at zero.

"To be more positive, we give up on the Fahrenheit scale and instead go with the Kelvin scale," WCAX-TV weatherman, Gary posted on Facebook. "There are no negative numbers on the Kelvin scale … Doesn't that just make you feel better seeing numbers like this?"
