Happy Autumn!

Fall at Mission Creek Woodland Park (Oct 2012)

Today is the Autumnal Equinox - or the day that the seasons change from Summer to Fall.  Officially the season changes for Mid-Michigan at 10:21AM (EDT). 

On this date, the hours of daylight and night are roughly equal.  The hours of daylight will decrease from now until the Winter Solstice on December 21st when there will only be 9 hours 2 minutes of daylight, before beginning to increase again to approximately 12 hours on the Spring Equinox and 15 hours 20 minutes on the Summer Solstice.

The weather this weekend is supposed to be beautiful, with highs near 70 degrees and nighttime lows near 50.  It should be a great time to go out and explore one of our many local parks and preserves.
