Last Day of Winter

Thursday, March 19th, 2020
Black-capped Chickadee, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 19 March 2020.
Black-capped Chickadee.

Today was the earliest date of the vernal equinox in more than a century. But since the equinox did not happen until nearly 10 p.m. (MDT), I had to consider this the last day of winter.

It was a foggy one. Chilly. Unlike yesterday, when a few little snowflakes blew in with the wind, there was fog and stillness.

Also a few deer in the fog. And several little pods of chickadees
