spring equinox 2011 :O

today is the vernal (spring) equinox. but old man winter apparently hasn't gotten the memo! spring arrives at 7:21 tonight - and so too does a forecast of a rain and snow mix, the leading edge of a rainy wintery precipitation that will hover over the city for most of this week.

we've had a real taste of great weather for the last few days - especially friday (when i got to run in shorts and a tee shirt). still, the cold manages to hang around. outside right now it's 29 degrees, with a wind chill of 22! back to running tights - at least for this morning!

but, hopefully, by the time the spring equinox 8k kicks off this afternoon, the temperature will climb into the 40's - for a taste of spring on this decidedly non-spring like day!

still, regardless of the weather today, or the next few days, we've turned the corner on winter!! hurray for that - and let's welcome the warmer weather to come :D
