Spring Equinox - Inbound Snow - Sun. Film Festival - Ted/AT - Property Anniversary!

The Spring Equinox!!!

At last!
Oh, yes, and there is snow predicted for after 5pm.
Spring in New England is hardly a clear and decisive transition, even as it is a hopeful thing.

Sunday is the FREE "Wild & Scenic" Film Festival at Clark!
The event is from 3-6 pm in Sackler Hall on the Clark Campus.
There are 10 short films and they are rated as appropriate for families.
There will even be a rafle and some GWLT logo gear will be raffled off.

Ted checked in from the AT last night!
