Spring officially arrived just a short while ago, at 5.58 EST, when the Spring Equinox rolled across the planet. It's never actually been a sudden switch from winter to spring; the seasons are a continuously unfolding tapestry of change. But it's a marker of sorts, telling us that warmer weather is on its way. Birds will return, snow will vanish, and in about six weeks leaves will unfold, turning the world here to green.
I celebrated by getting out for a ride on my chariot in the sunshine. It wasn't very long, just down the street and back, but it was wonderfully refreshing. Sure felt like spring.
