Winter Solstice

The sun has reached its southernmost point and will now begin its journey back north.

December Solstice 12-21-13

It’s the beginning of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, summer in the Southern.

Here in South Florida, the length of daylight varies by only about two hours between summer and winter, but for those of you up north, the long dark time is beginning to wane, even if the weather says it’s the bleak midwinter.

  1. I am grateful for it. We have had snow (11 inches so far), cold, and today it is pouring rain. We may get 4 inches of the wet stuff! Having the days grow longer will be a blessing.
