March 20th - Spring Equinox - 1st Day Of Spring

Balance an egg on the Equinox???
I tried and tried and tried to balance an egg on its pointy end. 
But couldn't do it! 


Kristine came over and said, 
"Give me the egg. I can do it!" 



Morgan stopped by and said, 
"Mom, she is tricking you!"


Sure 'nuff! 
Kristine pulled a fast one! 

Maybe our chickens lay eggs that are too pointy to balance? 

I'm writing this post on March 12 
and will keep trying to find an egg that I can balance 
and post a photo. 

Maybe an egg that looks like the egg in this Snopes link and video 
will help me with the trick. 

Click on this link... 
for lots of information and a video.

I tried several days but couldn't get an egg to balance.


Last night the snow looked like this on the porch.


At noon today the snow is starting to melt a bit.


I need to get outside and fix the flag.

2 eggs today

The Southern Lagniappe blog I follow got her egg to balance...

Maybe it's dependent on elevation? Maybe you should use the large end?

Loved your post. Thank you!
