Spring is Here!

Welcome to Spring 2012

The Vernal Equinox was reached early this morning at 1:14AM EST, this basically means that the Earth's angle to our Sun allows us to have the balance of an almost equal night and day in terms of 12 hours each.  The graphic below, illustrates the the Earth's axis, info and graphic courtesy of ; http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/march-equinox.html

The warmer weather has been affecting the southwest with numerous severe storms.   Normally Tornado season starts around the end of April.   Due to the higher than average temperatures, this season started early.  Please watch news reports and stay weather aware for the possibility of strong storms.
