Winter Solstice


So yesterday was the winter solstice... The shortest day of the year. For the VI it's not that much of a difference. From the longest day to the shortest day there is not that much of a difference. There's maybe an hour difference in the the sunrise/sunset times. It gets dark here early even on the longest day of the year. Add to that being in the sun all day (I know poor baby), it makes you go to bed earlier and earlier. Long gone are the days of staying up late enjoying being outside or enjoying the late night shows.

The one thing that winter solstice means to me, is that while I'm enjoying the sunshine, my friends and family back in the states are enjoying the snow! :-)
