Coffee Break: Spring

Planet Earth
The vernal equinox falls on March 19 nationwide this year. It's the earliest start to spring since 1896. This photo shows the Earth shortly before the moment of the equinox on March 20, 2019. (GOES-East/NOAA Environmental Visualization Laboratory, via NPR)

Though it doesn't feel like it in Minnesota today, it's officially the first day of Spring.

This year is notable because Spring is occurring earlier than it has in 124 years. The spring equinox, when day and night are roughly the same length, typically occurs on either March 20 or March 21, but not this year, babies!
