Springtime in Arkansas

June 20, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

It is officially the final day of spring.  Well, the last day of ASTRONOMICAL spring.  Us meteorologists like to simply define spring as March, April and May.  This is more aligned with the weather and peoples lifestyles. Instead, astronomers tend to define seasons based on the timing of the equinox.  Rather outdated thinking from centuries ago, in my opinion. For example, astronomers define December 19th as "fall", not winter. However, it clearly falls within the coldest 1/4 of the year, which is how I think seasons should be defined. But I digress...

Anyway, I thought I would write a quick post to show you some of my favorite pictures taken here in Arkansas during the last 3 months.

And we did see a lot of rain this spring...which means a lot of waterfalls!
