Spring Equinox Will Strike At Early Monday Morning!!! However Mom Already Balanced Egg on Sunday!!! 15 Hours BEFORE Equinox!!!

Kind of an unusual story to start your week off on this here my Monday Edition of EQ Blog. . . when I got home from riding bike on a very sunny Sunday afternoon my mom announced to me she had already gone ahead and tried her usual "Balancing an Egg" routine that normally comes with the equinox and reported to me it actually BALANCED at 2:30pm Sunday, or about 15 hours before the exact moment of the equinox! With the Spring Equinox arriving in it's "Entirety" at 6:29 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Monday, March 20, OR 5:29am Central, OR 3:59am Pacific on Early Monday Morning. . . NOT at all sure how to explain it!? We have always talked about the how's and why's of the egg balancing act and if infact you are NOT able to actually balance one the other days of the year, but haven't actually gone to the extent of testing that theory. So, at least for now as of this writing we do know it's not only the exact moment that such pull exists around the earth, but at best 15 hours before, too!!! Therefore at least for now until I have my mom investigate this more fully, we should probably also be aware of some additional pull on the earth as a result of them equinox's and solstices.
