Sunshine on the Solstice (makes me happy)

December 21st, 2011 at 10:50 am

After a couple of rainy gray days, we have sunshine. The blizzard kept itself to the western half of the state and here we only had rain, about 2 inches of rain. Drought be gone. Maybe.

Today, the sun hit the Tropic of Capricorn and is headed back north. Slowly.

It’s the first day of winter, but the beginning of longer, lighter days. And speaking of lights, today seems like a good time to say Happy Hanukkah!

    Love the post title. A nod to Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. who was born 10 days after the solstice in 1943.
