And a bonus Robert Frost poem……
“The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud come over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.”

Today, Sunday, March 20, at 12:20 AM EDT the sun will cross directly over the Earth’s equator. This is the vernal equinox when both day and night are about equal. Spring arrives, as well!
An equinox occurs twice a year — in March and September — when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night are nearly equal in all parts of the world.
