AUTUMN EQUINOX 2016
9.22.16 – 10:21am EDT
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Here we are once again…..
Amidst one of the hottest, most miserable summers I can remember. Getting to it quite a bit later this year than usual, but here is your annual countdown to the Autumn Equinox. That glorious day when the Earth’s equator passes through the center of the Sun, thus beginning a parole of sorts. An escape if you will. Like Andy Dufresne tunneling his way out of Shawshank Prison. That’s us. Those of us who enjoy breathing air and standing outside longer than 90 seconds; we’re currently nestled behind that lovely Raquel poster with our tiny rock hammers…. scraping, chipping, and digging away at a proverbial cement wall. Thankfully, at post time we’re only looking at 52 days, not 20 years.
That first 65° day will probably see me tearing my own shirt off and looking to the skies above in total euphoria. It can’t get here a moment too soon.
