Re: Happy shortest/longest day everyone!

The short & dark days are easily most tiresome part of winter, so it's nice to note that we're now on the upswing.

Funny coincidence. That's just about as long as our summer lasted this year...

Ouch! If I only had about that much summer, that amount of time would pretty much match the amount of time my sanity would last.

I'm glad the days are going to start getting longer. I've been so tired lately. I think I'm solar powered!

Re: Happy shortest/longest day everyone!

Should I be all Vulcan like and point out the shortest day is when the clocks go forward and the longest when they go back.

I know of course you mean daylight hours.

I commemorated today by correcting someone over the use of the word "equinox." I feel better already.

Although to be fair, today just flew by.
