Springfield Streets Closed By Fallen Tree — This is Springfield Road at South Rolling Road in Springfield, Pa. shortly after 11 p.m., April 3. South Rolling was still blocked at the intersection and the street light there remained an an obtuse angle. A windstorm that morning felled a large tree knocking wires into South Rolling and closing off the street at Cascade Road and Windsor Circle. Power was out for about an hour in the afternoon while PECO did repairs.
The moon has at times actually turned blue, it should be noted. This usually happens after a major volcanic eruption with the ash filtering the light reflected from the orb.
And the meaning of “blue moon” has changed slightly from when it came into use. It originally meant the third full moon in a season that had four, understanding that seasons are considered to be three months long and hence typically have but three full moons.
