First Day of Winter

Since we're in the midst of the third of three successive snowstorms here in the Northeastern United States in the last week, I gridgingly ought to acknowledge the Winter Solstice, which begins precisely now, at 7:04 AM EST.

The down side to this weather is that the raods are horrible and it takes twice as long to get to where you're going. On Friday, when the second snow storm was starting, it took me two hours to get to my kids house to pick them up for the weekend and three hours to get back home. This is a trip that normally takes me 90 minutes one way.

I suppose the only bright side to this whole mess is that the daylight hours get longer from here on out, at least for the next six months or so.

Have I mentioned here before how much I hate snow??

(Rhetorical question - you don't need to answer that...)

You're fortunate if you do not have to deal with snow.

My job was one of the few places to remain open as pounds of snow fell upon the earth and our heads and vehicles. I was in shock.

How much snow did you get? I think between the three storms combined, we probably have 20-26" of the white stuff.

I'm ready for spring already, and winter has just begun...
