FYI. Today is the shortest day of the year. Tomorrow the days start getting longer. Merry Christmas everyone. Jim Patrick
The wedding anniversary of a late friend of mine in Holland was December 21st. He claimed they picked it because it was the longest night of the year.
"As the days begin to lengthen, the cd begins to strengthen. "
It's also the full moon. A rare coincidence - gotta mean something right ?!? 8 - I
I think it is two days off before days start getting longer.
Do you mean that today is less than 24 ours long? Wow. How did that happen?
The days have been getting longer and the years shorter for many years at our house.
How do it happen?
It's like "Comparing life and a roll of toilet paper... They seem to roll faster toward the end."
Here's wishing all the best of your season!
You've made the 'day' a bit brighter by including Green Bay with your referenced link.
Just fix it (right) and make it work....
I donít know about the days, my remaining life is getting shorter every second.
Gotta go do something worthwhile now
Sunset in Calgary today was at 4:32 with an 8:37 sunrise.In northern Alberta where I used to live the sun came up at 9:00 this morning and set at 3:47. Headlights on to and from work.
On the other end, in late June it barely gets dark there at night.
Having been born and raised on the Texas gulf coast, working for three years near Rochester, NY was shocking...mainly because of the length of the days in the winter.
Like Harry said, it was headlights on, to and from work. It's gets kinda depressing after a while. I can see how people get a little bit screwy towards the end of winter in the northern latitudes.
Today was also the coldest day ever in my hometown on this date which is also the day I was born. So I was born on a cold day in h..well, you know.
Let there be light !
The worst part here is, the days may get longer, but it keeps getting colder for a couple months still...
We've been fortunate with no accumulating snow so far.
I know, bite my tongue !!!!
Coldfoot Alaska - the sun won't even come up for a while now. Of course, six months from now, it won't set for a while.
So, what are we bellyachin' about?
It's just what you get used to.
Personally, I like it that way.
I guess that means its the longest day where I am.
Its all down hill from here.
Love the comment about the toilet roll!!!!

Fred, hate to be the one to break this to you, but that started the day you were born....
Let the countdown begin. 89 days to spring.
Where's all that daylight that got saved when we change clocks ?!? We could use some of it about now !
We always turn back the Bathroom Scale about the twenty-first....5-10 lbs.....
