Happy Spring & Vernal Equinox!

Happy Spring! Why do we call this season spring? In the 14th century it was called “springing time” because plants “spring” from the ground. It was then shortened to “spring time” and now we call it “spring”.
 
Today is the vernal equinox. The day and night are the closet to equal duration in most time zones in the world. Sunrise 6:52 a.m. and sunset 7 p.m.
