I didn't read that the comment about the snowy night as proving it wasn't near an equinox. ISTM that it was just more extraneous information.

The person being kidnapped would know if it's near the equinox. They provided a method of solving for both the case of not near an equinox and hinted at the more complicated solution for the other.
