If you love your dog enough to buy them quality dog food, such as Hill’s Science Diet and Prescription Diet Canned Dog Foods, then you should be aware that there has been an extensive recall on many of these items due to elevated levels of Vitamin D.

Finally Spring, And A Full Moon!

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, Today's Events  Comments Off on Finally Spring, And A Full Moon!
Mar 202019
 

The crocuses have been popping up and robins are bopping around on lawns throughout Orange and surrounding towns.

It looks like the Groundhog was right, winter is gone and Spring is upon us!

According to the Old Farmers’ Almanac, the word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night” — aequus (equal) and nox (night).

On the equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world.

With the equinox, enjoy the increasing sunlight hours, with earlier dawns and later sunsets.

The spring equinox (also called the March equinox or vernal equinox) falls on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at 5:58 p.m.

A FULL MOON ON THE SPRING EQUINOX!

The vernal equinox marks the end of winter, and the start of spring and the Full Worm Moon is named after the earthworms that emerge at this time of year.

The Almanac goes on to say that the March full Moon is particularly special because it reaches its peak on the same day as the spring equinox, on March 20, 2019.

The last time the full Moon and the spring equinox coincided this closely (4 hours apart) was in March 2000, but the last time they occurred on the same date was on March 20, 1981!

But that’s not all: March’s full Moon also will be a supermoon, meaning that it will be slightly larger than most of the other full Moons this year.

What an extra-bright way to greet spring!!
