Happy Winter Solstice!
Today in Skagit County, Washington, the sun rose at 8:00 am and sets at 4:15pm. Tomorrow add a minute to that sunset! Yahoo! I love living in northern climes for the seasons and the long day light hours in the summer, but the winter darkness can get to you. Thank God for the holidays with all of their festive lights. Now nature will give us a little more light each day.
Tonight Heather and I are running in a Winter Solstice night run-five miles in the dark in a recreation area that once housed a mental asylum. Sounds to me like it should be a Halloween Run instead! Should be fun. Ok, for all you out there who don't follow the Gregorian calendar, Happy New Year. The Annus Novus has begun. Let there be light!
