Today is the first day of spring.
Well, at least by one of it's definitions it is. As I am writing this, the spring equinox has already occurred. From this moment on, on the northern hemisphere, daylight will rule over the darkness of the night. Each day, the time between sunrise and sunset will increase, until the sun reaches it's maximum elevation at the summer solstice which, this year, will occur on the 20th of June.
And what did we get to celebrate this special day? A very appropriate present. This morning, when we opened the curtains, we were surprised to see a beautiful white world out there again. Everything was covered by a few centimetres of freshly fallen snow.
