The Mid-Winter Blues of February 2015

A cold but sunny day here in Toronto with clear blue skies; it’s a deceiving picture when viewed indoors. Outside, it’s minus 25C with wind chill of minus 40C, Environment Canada, our national weather service, reports. How many more days till Spring, you say? Astronomical Spring begins with the vernal equinox on March 20th at 6:45 p.m. EDT, or 22;45 UT. Real spring in these parts always begins around April 15th. It’s a good day to stay indoors with a mug of Perry’s home-made hot chocolate.
