Even knowing that the season lags the calendar date, it's time to welcome the vernal equinox. The air is still quite nippy right now and while a jump to warmer temperatures would be welcome I'll be happy with a slow edging into spring warmth.

There are actually three events to celebrate today. From The Weather Channel:

Friday, March 20 brings with it a celestial showcase, a trio of events that includes a new moon, at 5:36 a.m., a total solar eclipse, at 5:46 a.m. and the vernal equinox, at 6:45 p.m., all Eastern time.

I'm looking forward to seeing the first grasses and flowers (of the season) emerging to add color to our world.
