Yes, we’re in a drought. Yes, we can expect a long, dry summer and fall with mandatory water restrictions. You can come up with your own list of troubles present and impending.

But today — as 9:57 a.m. PDT, the time of this year’s March <a href=”equinox — it’s spring. So for one day anyway, let’s let the sun trace its even path through the sky and embrace the scene around us, whatever it is.

We can take up with all our worries and woes tomorrow.
