The sun will shortly halt its plunge southward and begin its return to the north. We have see our way through the longest night, and the light will slowly begin to return. The snow will blow and the temperatures dip, but spring is waiting!
Isn't snow nice, it paints the drab brown, dead colors.
It will definitely be a white Christmas.
Here, just 5 miles south of the 45th parallel, halfway between the equator and the north pole, we will have sunrise (if we can see it through the blowing snow) at 7:26 local time, and sunset this afternoon at 4:13. It's a pretty short day.
Overnight he wind created some drifts just outside the back door. Some become very artistic sculptures eventually, now they are just odd shaped mounds.
I was hoping to be able to see the stars tonight.. Love to look up and see the changes in orientation from before the solstice and after..
So happy that we are past the solstice! Yeah!
I watch the sun set at its most southerly point on the Solstice, glad to have it returning north the nest day.
It is a balmy 15 degrees, up from 7 overnight. No snow...just cold.
Beautiful Picture Kathleen! I live in Central NY.
The snow has been so pretty! Its melting now. We have hit a warm spell!
Have a wonderful day all!
