Today (March 20th) is Spring Equinox! However, don't put away your earmuffs and winter clothes just yet.
Although today begins the first day of Spring at 12:15pm, mother nature is having the last laugh with 3 to 6 inches of snow expected Wednesday...with more in some parts of the Hudson Valley.
Eventually, we'll enjoy spring and this weather will be a distant memory.
Back to the the Spring Equinox...so, you're asking what exactly is an equinox? 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.
