Vernal Equinox

It’s that time of year. Spring will arrive at 10:50PM CDT tonight. You can watch it come at Archæoastronomy.

The air is already filled with pollen and the live oaks are dropping last year’s leaves. The azaleas have already peaked and the pear trees are snowy with blooms.

I would note that locally we have had 12 hours or more of daylight since St. Patrick’s Day, and usually do.

All the pollen in the air is confusing things here because sniffles and a sore throat are usual pollen allergy symptoms. I’ve been keeping careful watch on my temperature, so far so good. I’m just hoping that the panic buying is over soon, I have plenty of supplies for quite some time but there are luxury items that would be nice to have like more hot dogs and hot dog buns (lol).

Ate tuna and ramen noodles for lunch. Waiting for my new (to me) computer to be delivered, it’s a Supermicro 1U X10SRW-F Server E5-2630L V3. I have to sign for it, so I can’t just do stuff around the house, I have to be where I can hear the doorbell.

Very boring sitting at home, even though I’m working remotely…

Same here on the allergies. If I have to go out I wear a mask and gloves and respond to looks with “Allergies!”. The generic Zyrtec handle the symptoms for the most part except for the first half hour after I leave the house.

The panic buying is a major hemorrhoid. If they get stuff in I’m going to buy it because I’ll need it for tenants. If they start using paper towels they’ll clog the toilets and sewers.
