The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

We got your equinox right here

The calendar begs to differ, but inasmuch as the sun is setting right now at 6:39 pm, and inasmuch as the sun rose at 6:39 am, exactly twelve hours ago, and irrespective of how much snow fell on Nebraska and Iowa this morning, spring has sprung, dammit.

Let there be flowers, and grasses, and okay, maybe some weeds, but don't overdo it, wouldja please?

NO NO NO! I want more snow! It's too soon for spring!

Eighty degrees this afternoon. 80.

After a morning low of 37.

Yep, it's spring all right.
