Yes, today is the first day of spring. It's not a day where things suddenly change from black to white...where winter suddenly disappears and we have this pleasant time called spring. No , it's just one more day of slow change in each day. Sometimes the changes are warm and pleasant and on the other end we have cold and unpleasant times coming.
The first day of spring does give me a lift. It does give me more energy.
On Dec 21 , we had 7 hours and 39 minutes of sunshine. Today we have 12 hours and ten minutes of sunshine. So we've gained 4 hours and 32 minutes of sunlight since Dec. 21 2015. It just feels better to look at these numbers.
Where ever you are I hope you enjoy spring weather for your area.
Now for those people on the other side of the equator you are not left out. You will also have changes to look forward to and make proper preparations for the time.
