It might seem crazy,
What I'm 'bout to say,
Sunshine, she's here, you can take a break!

I wondered why the equinox was so early this year then remembered that this is a leap year. We had a February 29th sneak in there. Of course that is the whole point of having leap years otherwise the equinoxes and solstices would slowly move later in the year.

Still it is barely today. The equinox is around 20 minutes before midnight EDT.
