Happy Spring Equinox

Today, Tuesday, March 20th represents the vernal equinox, or spring equinox. It is one of two points during the year when the length of day and night is essentially the same and it signals the official start of spring, and this year, it’s the earliest start since 1896. Living in Colorado, this is a welcome change of events. After a long, cold and snowy winter, at this point in the year, not only am I ready for spring, I’m ready for summer and the resumption of all the outdoor activities that keep me sane in warmer temperatures.
