March 20th is Spring Equinox! Throw out your earmuffs and parka, because Saturday is the first day of spring! Drag your kiddie pool out of storage and slip on some flip-flops! The Spring Equinox is here! So…what’s an equinox, you ask? 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.
