Happy Vernal Equinox!

Today is the Vernal, or Spring, Equinox. It is one of two days during the year where the length of day and night are just about equal. There's an old myth that says you can balance an egg on an equinox. And, I did! (In fact, I have one sitting on the kitchen counter for my husband to see when he comes home.) But, I've also balanced them on other days.

The photo, above, is from a few days AFTER the Vernal Equinox several years ago. It takes a little practice, but with a steady hand you can balance an egg today. Or tomorrow! Why not give it a try?
