The daffodils are beginning to bloom, the mallards are pairing up and it is getting lighter out much earlier. Ahhh, spring must be here.
The official first day of spring is March 20 when the vernal equinox occurs at 7:02 a.m. According to almanac.com the word equinox is derived from the Latin words meaning “equal night.” Days and nights are approximately equal everywhere and the sun rises and sets due east and west.
In the meantime, stay warm and enjoy the changing of the season.
