On December 21, at 7:04 in the morning the sun will turn back toward the sun marking Winter Solstice. Winter Solstice is the shortest day and the longest night of the year. The weather forecast is 3 days and nights of falling snow (accumulation of up to 24") so it will be a while before I notice any increase in daylight hours.
Still, I count my blessings, every one.
