The vernal equinox has arrived.

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.

Since I bemoaned the dark, it seems appropriate that I should celebrate the light. Twelve hours and four minutes of it, today. Not the longest day, but we’re getting there.

Most striking is the contrast in shadow profiles between the solstice and the equinox. Happy Vernal Equinox.
