Spring started at 7:02 Eastern Daylight Time this morning. I couldn’t tell it happened. The weather here is cold and windy. I was out running errands and wished I had worn a third layer.
There is a legend that you can balance an egg on its end at the precise time of the Spring Equinox. I have no idea if this is true and I don’t have the patience to try it.

Here are some pictures of eggs.

All of the pictures are from Wikimedia Commons.
