First Day of Spring 2021

The dark season is officially over! It happened at 5:37 AM EDT this morning.

It actually happened on the 17th when we crossed over 12 hours of sunlight per day--but Spring began this morning.

I have felt that we were suffering through Winter's last gasp for the past few days, but now that is over. Chris and I even have a golf Tee Time for tomorrow to celebrate the first full day of Spring.

The signs of the new season are everywhere. The trees are beginning to leaf as many of them are red with the signs of the season springing out.

I am more and more called to be outside, but the cold last week of the winter made that a miserable experience. Although I noted as I walked out of the building that I work in yesterday that the sky was clear and blue. Something which we had not seen in a few days as the first rains of March graced the land. 

But now the new season is off and running! And I will be running along with it.
