Last Moon of Winter

A thin crescent moon peeks out from the gathering twilight at 7:19 PM tonight. In less than 50 minutes from the time I took this picture it will officially be Spring.

The Romans had the right idea, starting their year at the beginning of April*. Even though the snow will be around for a little bit longer, Spring definitely feels like the start of something new.

Happy New Spring, everyone. Maybe this year will be better than the last.

*No, that's wrong. It started in March. Hence, the eighth month was October, the ninth month November, and the tenth month December. The association of April Fool's day with the "old" start of the year was...oh, the hell with it. Look it up yourself. Just don't trust anything you find online.
