Spring has sprung???

Today is the vernal equinox. The sun passed over the equator today (or the earth tilted so it seemed to) and will now for six months spend most of her (I think of the Sun as feminine, though that's usually the moon--but I'm a white man feminist!) time hanging around up here in the Northern Hemisphere while the Southern Hemisphere goes through Autumn and Winter.

It's the first day of Spring!

Always a dangerous claim in New England which is well known for messing up Spring big-time. But I'm holding on to the hope.

The sky was painfully blue all day and sunlight was abundant off the snow, requiring sun glasses big time. And it was warmer, warmer by a big.

Hope springs eternal for Spring here in the Nutmeg state. (How dumb is that, compared to 'the Sunshine State', 'the Mountain State' or even our New England neighbor's 'the Granite State'?)

I hope and pray it's true that Spring is here....

But in my over 30 years in Connecticut, I've seen Easter snows a few times....
