It is officially Spring or we are in the midst of the vernal equinox. Vernal equinox? Beginning of spring: the time when the Sun crosses the celestial equator and day and night are of equal length, marking the beginning of spring. Either March 20th or 21st. Okay! Now that we all have the official definition, I just like the day because it marks the time when winter should be behind us and warmer days are ahead. By the way, it is 45 degrees at 7:24AM with a high expected of about 69-70 degrees for this first day of Spring. This is what is blooming in the Deep South right now in honor of this special day!
