Spring officially arrives today and the weather forecast is for a very "spring-like" day today.  Residents of Chattooga County enjoyed a beautiful day on Friday the last day of winter.  Spring arrives on the March Equinox….the day when there is almost exaclty 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of dark. 

The date for Easter is determined by when the March Equinox occurs and the relation of that day to the full moon.  This was determined about 1600 years ago by the Roman Catholic Church as a way to try to prevent Easter from happening on the same day as the Jewish Passover.  Easter this year will fall on April 4th, just two weeks from tomorrow.

The weather forecast for Chattooga County is calling for a beautiful day today with a high near 70 degrees and rain back in the forecast for Sunday and Monday.
