Spring Equinox is Tuesday, March 20 at 11:15 a.m. and marks the first day of Spring, astronomically, in the northern hemisphere.

And finally, the March full moon is sometimes called “The Full Worm Moon” since this month earthworms begin to emerge from the earth. “Now where are my fishing poles?” Enjoy it!
