Spring is just around the corner; 11 more days

No kidding. The weather is getting warmer.

In just 11 days, at precisely 1:26 p.m., spring will officially begin. This year's vernal equinox occurs on March 20. It is the day when the sun will cross directly over the Earth's equator, resulting in days and nights of equal length.

The word "equinox," means equal night in Latin. Can the peeptoads and crocuses be far behind?
