The vernal Spring equinox (around March 20 or 21) is when the sunrise and sunset are closest to being exactly 12 hours apart; when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the center of the Sun being in the same plane as the Earth’s equator. (1)
But when you say, “it’s Spring!” you definitely do not think about the above definition. This past week we ushered Spring in with style with temps in the 70’s. You may have noticed that Spring Fever was getting the best of your co-workers. I know I felt something coming on about noontime several days in a row…
But now I may be hearing about a reality check? Temps may dip back down to 28 degrees sometime next week? Please say it isn’t so! But hey we still live in the Northeast after all. The good with the bad and all that, right?
