After a week of stunning bright clouds, our sun crossed the equator on March 20, at 5:58 p.m. -  for its Vernal Equinox. 

Burnished by fresh wind, March clouds at Tyler Hill sail above a lake, still iced-in.

Hamlet: “Do you see yonder cloud that’s  
almost in shape of a camel?”                                                
Polonius: “By the mass, and ‘tis like a camel indeed.”
H: “Methinks it is like a weasel.”
P: “It is backed like a weasel.“ 
H: “Or like a whale?”
P: “Very like a whale.”
