Spring Breaks

By , March 27, 2019

It seemed too cliché to be true, but spring really seemed to kick into high gear on March 19th.

I find that date significant: our latitude’s spring equinox, the day when hours of light and dark balance out, fell on March 18th this year. The “official” spring equinox, the one on the calendars, fell on March 20th (see An Unequal Vernal Equinox). On the day between, everything seemed to click, we tipped the balance from wintry weather to spring. Spring broke, one might say.

An Irish Interlude

By , March 18, 2019

Stuff’s piling up here, folks.

As ever, the blog reflects what’s on our minds. Unfortunately, two major subjects weighing on our minds are not blog-worthy, at least for now. That distracts us considerably.

On top of that, our cell carrier’s tower has broken down. Amazingly, we still have phone coverage, and internet, although it’s spotty sometimes. I composed a decent post for today, but the internet decayed to the point where it didn’t save. I’ll reconstruct it in the coming days, but it will not meet today’s deadline.

So, since yesterday was Saint Patrick’s Day, I offer an Irish interlude, with more photos from our trip to Ireland last autumn (see Every Sign a Song Cue). Ironically, I managed to upload these photos, something the system seems reluctant to do since the tower went down. Enjoy!
