So, Solstice was yesterday.
(Full disclosure: when it comes to Solstice rankings, I definitely prefer the other one. Six months from now it will be warm and sunny and the daylight will last until 10pm and beyond. There will be gin and tonic, after-supper paddles with whales on flat, glowing water, and no socks. I have always preferred these simple pleasures to what is available at this time of year.)
Still, the days start getting longer, beginning now. So there’s that. And if you’re a skier, this next week or so looks pretty good.
It almost seems like this should be New Year’s day… as if the calendar is off by a week-and-a-half.
