We celebrated the equinox in proper New England style with a snowstorm that kept everyone home from school and activities, knocked the power out, and covered everything out there in a pretty layer of white.
Inside, we dyed eggs (using red cabbage, onion skins, beets, turmeric and some blue food dye for good measure), stayed cozy by the fire, played many games of chess, did some knitting, and otherwise enjoyed the unexpected 'day off' for all.
And with the passing of the spring equinox, now we know for certain that no matter if it snows, or not, the days will continue to get longer. And that spring snow, oh, it melts so quickly, acting as water for the growing plants and flowers of spring.
