It was a nice sunny day yesterday in Southern New England. The temps hit in the mid 50's and with some wind. I could not resist going for a walk at sunset time. The extra time we gained from the time change last month has really given us longer sunsets and more time in the evening to be outdoors and enjoy nature.
I passed the soldier that stands in front of the high school I used to attend years ago. I could not remember where the soldier came from - you can read via the plaque above the history behind it.
I noticed a difference from the mid march skies just a few weeks ago.
As you can see from this chart below, each day gives us 2 more minutes of daylight this month.
