About the only event remotely considered worth celebration that I acknowledge, Earth/ Sky News reminds us today is the Winter Solstice. That's when the sun reaches it's lowest point in the Northern Hemisphere and we have our shortest day and longest night. That is reason for celebration. I just wish it would start getting warmer, but we've likely some time before that happens. Seems to me February usually brings our colder weather and snow up here. After that I'll look forward to it getting warmer. As I wrote elsewhere, every year I get older, it feels a degree or two colder.
