The Vernal Equinox Saturday March 20 2010
The Vernal Equinox Saturday March 20 2010 – After what has been known as a year of especially harsh weather around the globe, it appears that all that will be coming to an end on March 20, when the Vernal Equinox arrives. Those who live near the north pole are wiping the sweat off their foreheads, as they eagerly await the arrival of the vernal equinox. The Vernal Equinox signals the end of the harsh weather, and the beginning of spring. It is a natural phenomenon that occurs once per year, every year.
It is the only time of the year where the amount of daylight during the day, and darkness during the night will be completely equal. It is regarded as a sign that spring is coming, but is not at all related to the recent spring ahead of Daylight Savings Time. In recent years the vernal equinox has signaled a huge change in weather patterns, with harsh weather coming much less frequently around the globe after the vernal equinox takes place every year. This is a holiday that is celebrated by individuals all around the world, especially by those who live in the harshest of climates on the planet.
The Eastern side of the United States should be pleased to hear this as well. They have endured an especially harsh Winter, including several blizzards that dumped feet of snow on the ground across the Eastern half of the United States, taking out power and leaving families to fend for themselves for weeks on end in some cases. While harsh weather conditions are still relatively common after the vernal equinox, they are much less likely to happen as the planet shifts into spring, from winter. Individuals around the nation who have been negatively affected by the winter storms breathe a sigh of relief.
