Judging by the current high pollen count… and my allergies… it feels like Spring began over the weekend.
The high pollen count is expected to continue through Friday with North Texas on HIGH alert! If you suffer from allergies, take precautions.
Technically, the first day of Spring in North Texas, began today, at 5:29am, according to TimeAndDate.
The March equinox is the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator (the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator) from south to north, and the opposite in September.
