The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

17 February 2004

So where's spring already?

Well, it can't be too far off. While today was the first day since the 25th of January with actual above-average temperatures — and about time, too — the real harbinger of spring is the ever-lengthening day, which finally reached 11 hours today after bottoming out at a painful 9:35, on its way to the twelve-hour equinox. (For summer buffs, the longest day of the year at this latitude runs 14:25.)

I still have half a dozen bare trees, but their time is coming.

Hey! Watch it with those Fleetwood Mac references.

Fleetwood Mac references? Clearly this is over my head; it's a mystery to me. Oh, well...

And incidentally, we wound up slightly below average for yesterday, owing to a colder morning than I had realized. (Normal range for the date: high 54, low 32. What we got was 55/27.)

We are promised 60s, and fairly high 60s at that, for today.
