Mysterious Mansions, Glass Castles, and Tiny Houses

Yesterday was the first day of spring, and for a change, we’re actually having spring weather for the vernal equinox!  The downtown planters contain crocuses and trees all over town are in bloom.  This marks the half-way point between the winter solstice (shortest day of the year) and the summer solstice (longest day of the year).  We had 9 hours and 21 minutes of daylight on December 21st and will have 14 hours and 59 minutes on June 20th.  Yesterday we had 12 hours and 9 minutes.  Source.
