Happy Equinox!

The equinox is when there are an equal number of daylight and night time hours. This holds exactly true at the equator. I reside 45 degrees north of the equator and so where I live, today I have 12 hours 6 minutes of day and 11 hours 54 minutes of night. So it seems the day of 12/12 has already passed for me without my even having been aware of it.

It *was* a little freaky to leave the PU's place Sunday evening and to get home and the sun to still be there!

That's just CRAZY!

So is this:
