Spring Is Nigh

American robinI didn't get on last night and forgot today, but yesterday on the way to my car after work I saw my first American (red-breasted) robin of the year, a traditional sign of Spring. Other symbols of the fertility that Spring represents are brightly colored blue robins' eggs and rabbits. Sound familiar?

I cherish Winter, but am greatful to see the sun more hours each day. It really helps with the seasonal affective disorder.

The moment of the equinox this year is 6:34am CST. I figure that if you happen to be about 20 miles west of Lincoln, NE (i.e., the middle of nowhere), you can enjoy the synchrony of the moment of the equinox and sunrise. My Colorado friends will get the sunrise a little after and we in Iowa and Minnesota and Wisconsin will get it a bit after. Aim, maybe we can average it out. :)

I think people canoeing and kayaking, like Brenda and I have done, twice, this week, are decent signs of spring. *nod nod*

Thank you, Cap'n Smartass. The ice on the lake is breaking up, and there are large parts of open water. Today we got into the mid-50's and I was walking around outside without coat or jacket. It was a brilliant day today. :P I only wish I'd gotten a chance to enjoy more of it.

*giggle*

Water temp is around 66 degrees, currently. And yes, I am a smart ass. Thank you for noticing. ;)
