To be fair, we still have quite a way to go until we get to spring. In fact, as of this writing we still have 48 days to go if you're counting (which we are, by the way).

But it's those little things that can make you think of spring that could help break the winter doldrums.

And our eagle-eyed editor Brad snapped this photo of one of the things that many look forward to every year right here at the shore:

That's right, Shamrock Shakes have arrived at some area McDonald's locations.

If it seems early to you, it is.

In the past, the green, minty milkshakes didn't start to show up until mid-February. 

But in addition to the McDonald's on Route 35 in Wall openly advertising them, we also hear anecdotal evidence that if you ask really nicely, you might be able to get one at your closest McD's even if they're not on the menu yet.

Let us know if it works for you!
