Vernal Equinox

It’s that time of year. Spring arrives at 4:24PM CDT this afternoon. You could have watched 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 before St. Patrick’s Day, and usually do.

Hi Bryan. I guess it’s warming up where you are. I hope all is going well for you. It seems like this spring has taken a lot longer to warm up, over here. I’m sure glad spring has finally arrived!

We experiencing temperatures of lows in the mid 50s and highs in the mid 70s. I will shut off the gas to my heater after Easter as we could have another cold spell with all of these fronts moving through. The latest really blasted Alabama. We have been getting rain but no violent weather.
