At a glance: More sun for fun

By From page B2 | March 20, 2013

Escabar_MimiSpring arrives in El Dorado County with the vernal equinox at 4:02 a. m. on Wednesday, March 20. Spring brings more daylight hours, new growth on plants and more daylight time to do fun things. Equinox is from Latin meaning “equal night” so the days and nights are approximately equal on this day. There are two equinoxes during the year – one in March and the other in September. Obviously when spring starts in the northern hemisphere it is fall in the southern portion of the Earth.
