Summer Officially Begins

Monday at 6:28am!!  I know what you are thinking…ummmm Sarah…I have been sweating for a month!  Yeah but unfortunately that was just our spring my friends.  We have been a little above average here and there but there have not been too many days that we have been close to records.

June 21st at 6:28am, is more of a scientific start to summer.  It is called the Summer Solstice.  You may have also heard of the Winter Solstice, the Vernal Equinox and the Autumnal Equinox.  All are official starts to Winter, Autumn, Spring and Summer.  Well why is Monday “THE DAY”…what is so special about 6:28am? Well this is the moment that the northern Hemisphere is most tilted toward the sun.

It is also the longest day of the year!
