Winter has arrived!
The Winter Solstice is here! What's that mean? Well one its Winter, and two that today is the shortest day of the year! Today the north pole is tilted far enough away from the sun that the sun doesn't rise north of the Artic Circle for an entire 24 hr period. So the Northern Hemisphere receives the fewest hours of sunlight.
So today will be a short day for us in the N. Hemisphere but good news it only will get longer! So you probably drove in to work today in the dark and will drive home in it too. Nothing to boost your spirits like that right? With no snow on the ground by us right now it sometimes makes it hard to realize Christmas is so close however the drive in and out of work is nice with clean dry roads. It's a touch call but yes having snow on the ground especially in NY is something we love. In fact where we live we have broken a few records so far because how warm it's been. We had a few days in the 60's last week! So with a few days of shopping left and the shortest day of the year today what will you be doing with your time?
Happy Winter everyone!
You are never alone...
