After two weeks of Spring-like weather, the temps dipped this morning but calendar now says it is Spring. Around noon the earth's equator faces directly to the sun. The time between sunrise and sunset becomes 12 hours in both the north and south hemispheres. The north is now halfway towards summer while the south hemisphere heads towards winter.
By the way, the ground hog's shadow predicted 6 more weeks of winter this year. That would have been about right if he went by the calendar! As far as the weather goes, he was easily two weeks too long!
