The blahs of winter (or is it Winter?) …

It is only January 14, and the Scribe is already sick of winter. Or is it Winter? And he longs for the vernal equinox. Or is it the Vernal Equinox?

Here’s the rule: the four seasons are not capitalized (“fall is my favorite time of year”). Similarly, references to the solstice and equinox are lowercased (“the Druids celebrated the summer solstice”; “in Oregon, arrival of the vernal equinox does not mean winter is over”).

That is all for now …
