It's winter solstace

Wooo Hooo....Solstace may not mean much to my BBQ brethern in the lower 48, but in the North it means the days will start getting longer. Today, the shortest day of the year, we have 5 hours and 23 minutes of daylight here in Anchorage. Those unfortunate folks that live in some towns in the part of my state that lies north of the Arctic Circle have had no daylight for about 3 weeks and will not see the sun for another 3 weeks.

Happy solstace everyone.
