Happy Winter Solstice!

In the midst of all this crazy Apocalypse talk, I feel like a more important event has been forgotten about. The Winter Solstice!

Happy Shortest Day of the Year!

If I might offer the traditional greeting: May your measurements always be accurate, and your statistics devoid of systematic bias.

Happy Summer Solstice to those in Australia and New Zealand. Lovely sunny day in Hobart with a 25C maximum predicted.

Happy Winter Solstice!

I am now going to celebrate by turning on every light in house and then watching my husband have a fit.

Mmm. I'm not really noticing it being darker longer down here. Interesting. It was obvious in DC and Cincinnati, and especially New England. But no, not down here in the Bayou.
