Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Today we have the Vernal equinox. I spent a little time on google this morning trying to figure out what that is all about. What I found is this is one of two days a year where we have equal amounts of light and dark (Vernal and Autumnal equinoxes). It is midway between the winter and summer solstices. It is also the official first day of spring---hang on to your hats we're gonna get some storm to celebrate spring---maybe not today but we aren't out of the woods yet.

It's actually so nice here that we have our windows opened. Last night my daughter came downstairs and said it was cold. I looked at the thermometer and saw that it aw 70 degrees. I think she just isn't used to the humidity yet.
