What a delight, with last night's snow and the big moon light breaking through from time to time. Shimmering and frosty, it was a sight to see. Here we are again approaching the very moment when the sun moves across the equator with equal time for day and night for everyone on earth, and then the swing for more warmth here.
For the Truckee Meadows, the thin layer of snow is another springtime drink for the soil and perennials just beginning to stir.
Saturday's moon is a Big Moon, a 'Supermoon' with its closeness to the earth making people excited about astro-logic, about the circle of life, about big changes when the future pulls the tides and we dream of the prospects of growing things, of helping the garden grow.
We welcome snow on the eve of the Vernal Equinox. We welcome the moisture and the worms awakening. Where do we go from here? Into Spring. Soon we will see much more greening.
