It's Winter

This will come as no surprise (especially considering the recent cold temps and icy roads) but today marks the first day of winter.

The winter season officially began at 9:47 this morning, making today the shortest day of the year and one featuring the longest of nights.

While you huddle around the space heater later this evening, keep that long range target of June 21st in sight, that's when we'll celebrate the longest day of the year and perhaps one that will be a little warmer than what today has to offer.

For your Winter Solstice reading (read quickly the light is fading!), a few background items on today's move into the winter season from the official to the astrological and beyond.
