Spring Equinox

While March showed some lamb-like weather this past weekend, Spring is officially rolling in like a blustery lion. Today, the Vernal Equinox (which actually occurred just before midnight) marks the celestial point when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night are nearly equal in all parts of the world. But while the giant star might be doing something special today somewhere behind the snow clowds, I’m not sure we’ll be able to notice it much.

Here in Baristaville, we’ve moved almost fully round the seasons in the past few days though not in the correct order.

If Friday was summer, Sunday was spring and Monday is winter, will we have autumnal weather on Wednesday? Nah, it’s only March doing its wacky thing.
