The vernal equinox was yesterday at about 5:20 p.m., so today is the first day of spring.
And a cold, wet, blustery one it is, too, much more so than has generally been the case lately.
However, sunshine should return tomorrow, along with a warming trend over the next few days.
Spring always brings with it an aura of hope. Considering our experience, i don't know why that should be, but there it is.
