Snow, cold, and the Vernal Equinox…

Depending on which calendar you consult, the Vernal Equinox is either today or tomorrow. This is when the ends of the poles (imagine a skewer through the Earth) are pointing neither at nor away from the Sun. In other words, since the Winter Solstice, the North Pole has been arcing its way towards the Sun, and this is pretty much the halfway point.

We had snow last night and today its sunny, windy, and cold. Beginning tomorrow, however, the temperatures are supposed to be climbing into the 50’s for daytime highs. Spring? I hope so. I’m done with winter, I really am.

My Mini Cooper is due to be delivered at the end of this week, so I should have it by Saturday night.

School is going well…Two good classes yesterday and hopefully tonight’s science class will be as smooth. My homework is completed and I know all that I will know. Time to turn it over.

Above are a couple of pictures I like. Very colorful and harbingers of the warming weather, I hope.

She is happy as a lark and is surrounded by a crew of sober women which gives him the freedom he needs to get out of town. When he is not at home in Somewheresville, he is searching out the proper path to travel for happiness and joy. He is a photographer who believes in the digital age, but feels that film is still where its at. He has a darkroom and works in it. He is single and is in remarkably great physical condition for all the damage he has submitted his body to. His cardiologist is very happy. Johnnyboy is over the age of 35.
