Spring Begins Tomorrow!



Spring begins
Friday, March 20th, 5:45 pm CDT



That's when we will experience the "spring equinox" (also known as the "vernal equinox"), and the northern hemisphere begins its gradual tilt toward the sun--that will eventually lead us into summer.

So, if you're tired of winter...get ready...because warmer days are just ahead!


Note: During the Equinox the Earth's axis tilts neither away
from nor towards the sun and is perpindicular to the Sun's rays.
During the Summer Solstice the Earth's axis tilts toward the Sun.
During the Winter Solstice the Earth's axis tilts away from the Sun.
