Winter lies through that door

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

The Winter solstice happens today at 12:47 PM (if I’ve done my math right). It’s the shortest day of the year and the official start of the season of winter.

Windows to the Universe, a cool astronomy site from the University of Michigan, has a diagram of how the sun moves through the sky today. Hint: short & south handles it in two words.

See this bigger in Tina’s michigan – misc set (slideshow).

I hope you stay warm this winter and that Michigan’s season of adversity gives way to prosperity before too long.
