Winter Solstice 2010

Winter Solstice 2010

Well, that's the winter solstice over! Last night should have been the longest night, although I didn't stay up to measure it, and the days now start to get longer. :grin:

Does this mean that we can start to think about next year's trips?

This country is still in the grip of Arctic style weather and we still have an overall covering of snow here albeit only a few inches. Some (many?) places have much worse.

I saw two foxes in the garden yesterday, both of them trotted past my study window, but by the time I saw them there was no point in even reaching for the camera as they were in view for only a few seconds. I'd like to get a photograph but I can see it happening only with a large slice of good luck.

The new year is only 10 days away. :cool:

  1. It is as it should be! Solstice with a full moon! The Druids etc are happy. So am I (where does that put me?)

    Here, we had 3 inches of snow last night. 8:30 AM it started freezing rain – very light. Tonight’s forecast: low 18F with a snow shower and freezing fog :cry: At least its warm – by our standards. Its getting to be more like our “normal” weather for this time of year, not like the -15F to -20F mornings of a week ago.

    Everybody enjoy the upcoming holidays: Solstice, Christmas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, New Years. I’ll have a scotch and remember the half-a-day I spent with Barry and Amanda this past August.


  2. I would have loved to have seen the lunar eclipse, but way too late for me :bawl:
    I would like to trade one of your foxes for my coyote. He (she?) has been seen many times not more that 10 feet from my back door. Looks awful big to me :|

    It’s snowing right now, but I don’t think it will amount to much – less than an inch – I hope
