    today March 20 marks the spring equinox for 2017

    for those millennials at TDPRI who have never been outside, this means that the axis of the Earth, i.e. the planet that you purport to "live" on, is now tilting toward something called "the Sun," which means that the days will become longer and warmer, heralding the arrival of "Spring"

    elder members may continue their usual rejoicing

    Outside? That reminds me of the time the Wi-Fi went down for 10 minutes and I actually had to visit with my family. They seem like nice people.

    Can we turn around and go back the other way? Today is the 9th day in a row of mid-90° temp here in the Sonoran Desert. As of last Thursday we have an officially made it through the hottest March in recorded history here, and the month was just half over.
     
  10. My local ski resort is open until Easter, so not so fast with the warm stuff, please.

    Went outside and mowed and weed-whacked the front and backyard this morning.

    Now my throat is hacked from all the dust and pollen, even though I wore a dust mask.

    It ended up being 79 degrees this afternoon. Didn't expect that.

    Spring? what is that? We only have two seasons here: Hot season, and Kinda Not Hot season.

    I was about to take offence, then realised I'm not a millennial.

    SCORE! :D

    Spring is what those three weeks are between last summer and this summer, here in AZ.

    The snow is finally melting here. Enough that I found two firewood trees that I cut down last June without using an avalanche probe. Happy vernal equinox, life is good.

    That is what I thought until I moved up here from California. Now, Spring is a delightful ever changing three month adventure.
