Vernal Equinox 2011 Sunday and it's finally Spring!

Ambient music and LAPD police radio chatter mashup
 Choose from Los AngelesNew YorkSan FranciscoChicago, or my personal recommendation, Montréal. French police chat really blends into the music nicely. You may need to adjust the balance of each stream a bit to find the right mix. Via Boing Boing

What is this loud noise? Weird environmental event in Florida

"Posted: 12:12 pm EDT March 18, 2011

Investigators are trying to solve a bizarre mystery in Flagler County. A wave of people called 911 around 9:30am Friday to report the ground shaking in Flagler County. The calls all came from the Hammock area of Palm Coast (see map).
However, people in the north Daytona area, as well as in Deltona and as far north as St. Augustine, said they felt it as well. Many people were worried that the shaking was an earthquake.
The Emergency Management Office was on the phone all day trying to figure out the cause of the shaking. Residents said that buildings were shaking, and even a dispatcher in the county felt it happen."

Supermoon last night. Went up to the roof at 4m to savor its beauty.

The first and only time I heard Vernal Equinox in a song is in the marvelous, emotionally rich Honest Lullaby by Joan Baez.
"Padded bras and campus jocks 
Who hid their vernal equinox
In pairs of faded jeans
And slept at home resentfully
Coveting their dreams"
