Spring will officially begin this afternoon at 12:15 pm. Today the daylight length (interval between sunrise and sunset) is pretty much the same everywhere, 12 hours and 8 minutes.

Here are the signs that Spring has arrived!

My relatives are taking the heater BACK to the pawn shop.

Things are budding out all over.  As in, Buds and Bud lights at my buddy's house. He had Syracuse losing to Michigan State (NEVER DOUBT THE ORANGE) and Virginia winning it all in his tournament bracket. Nothing like being out of the tournament after the first weekend.

Snow on top of my convertible is gone.....replaced by bird poo. YUCK

A young man's fancy turns to thoughts of "love."  I've been reminded by Dawn that I'm not young anymore, so forget it.

One last fact: Spring begins today in the Southern Tier but in the southern hemisphere, today is the beginning of autumn!
