Spring arrived this morning at 6:28 am. time to celebrate. We may have to wait till Mother nature gets the message and then you can toss out your earmuffs and parka. Once the snow finally melts, you can drag out your lawn chairs and kiddie pool out of storage and slip on some flip-flops! The Spring Equinox is here! So…what’s an equinox, you ask? It’s a special day when the night and day are approximately equal everywhere, and when the sun rises exactly in the East, and sets exactly in the West.
Some think that on the Equinox, a raw egg will be able to balance on one end. So go out and try it! But on second thought, maybe bring a coat. It may be spring officially, but the weather gods haven’t quite gotten the message.
From Lost in the Woods: The Movie, available on DVD. In the Spring is Here Song, a squirrel, a turtle, baby birds and other forest animals sing about the coming of spring. Music written and performed by Laura and Robert Sams of Sisbro Studios.
