Welcome to Spring 2015!
So, Spring arrived at 6.45 PM this evening. It feels good psychologically, even though the temperatures are still low. Ever so thankful that it is not as low as it was for most of February.
In Toronto, it was the first February in 75 years where the temperature did not climb above the freezing mark.
Now we can look forward to longer daylight hours and warmer temperatures.
Also, this year there was a total eclipse of the Sun on the same day of the Vernal Equinox! This is quite rare; the next time this happens is 2034. The total solar eclipse occurred over the Faroe Islands, off Scotland.
North America will see a total solar eclipse on April 8th 2024 ……. quite some time away.
