Fire and Snow

It's almost a month past the winter solstice.  It's 4:20pm and an office building is catching the reflection of the setting sun through the snow covered trees.  Official sunrise was 9:50am for a total of 6 hours and 41 minutes.  That's a gain of 4 minutes and 28 seconds from yesterday. 

The unrelenting snow storms we've had since Halloween have paused and we've had nearly a week of sunny, if cold, days.  Even though this is winter, the increasing light brings hope of warmer and sunnier days.  And J and I are getting ready to head south for several big events - a wedding and two 90th birthdays.  Fortunately, the redistricting board trial ended Tuesday (they were ready to go through Friday) and so I've had time to catch up with my life and most things I wanted to do before we left are getting done.  An important step - the house sitter is ready to move in as we move out.
